Literary Nonfiction. Art. Photography. While walking from his birthplace on the island of Galveston to the town of Marfa, where he and his wife will build their own home, poet Joshua Edwards took a photograph at the end of each hour of walking with the constraints of using only available light and a fixed lens. This book collects all 230 photographs from the 680-mile trip. This book serves as a companion to a collection of poems and travel pieces, ARCHITECTURE FOR TRAVELERS, also published by Edition Solitude.
