100 PHOTOGRAPHS by JULIAN BOUND
A collection of photographs from National Geographic contributor and award winning documentary photographer Julian Bound.
With images from eleven countries '100 Photographs' is a representation of how the world is now, and how the emotional characteristics of the human condition remains unswerving throughout the changes surrounding it.
These emotive aspects are portrayed within 100 unique photographic views of the world, revealed in the happiness of novice monks at play in the high walled fortress monasteries of Bhutan, the pensive stares of street vendors on the cobblestone lanes of the Nepalese capital Kathmandu, and the determination of sulphur miners earning a living amid the hazardous conditions of Indonesia's active volcanoes.
As the twenty-first century striding through its opening decades, developments in the world have been seen in the advancement of medicine and technology and given us unlimited access to the far regions of the planet, yet there is one constant which accompanies these innovations of a new world - the people who live alongside such progressions.
