The Paths Men Take

Introduction by Davide Sapienza
Contrasto, 2016

London was a significant writer of the early twentieth century; his most notable works include include Call of the Wild and The Sea Wolf. But more than that, he was also a photographer (referring to his images as human documents) and the camera was to become his inseparable companion on adventures and assignments all over the world. This book presents a wide selection of his photographs, accompanied by passages taken from some of his greatest works, of fiction and journalism: essential milestones in which London became witness to the great events of his time, their contours expanding and emerging from the human documents of The People of the Abyss, the Russo-Japanese War, the San Francisco earthquake and the incredible voyage of the Snark. (Adapted from publisher’s description)
