For 30 years Michael S. Lewis, MD, traveled to 50 countries observing "up-close and personal" people and animals, exotic and ordinary places, architectural wonders, and vast and small landscapes. With the world bombarded by ugly news and images, the beauty and professional skill of this collection of photographs make the initial impact, while the accompanying quotes provide the reminder that the world is still filled with splendor and that there is dignity in diversity. A photo of Cambodian landmine victims is intensified by the words of Bob Dylan, while other images are enhanced by similar wisdom from Winston Churchill, Rumi, Marcel Proust, and others. The images in this collection communicate the awe of living together on a shared Earth, from a sunset over the forest of Botswana to a vintage 1950s Chevy in Havana to a wonderland beneath the Red Sea.

 

As a concrete manifestation of his interest in opening eyes, a portion of the profits from One World: A View of Seven Continents is donated to the Himalayan Cataract Project (HCP) which has restored sight to more than 200,000 patients in Tibet, Nepal, India, Pakistan, Bhutan, and Sikkim and now has expanded into Ghana.
