The Human Thread is a celebration of outstanding photography. Over 100 images represent photographer Joe Coca’s remarkable work, spanning forty years and five continents. Through evocative images, insightful descriptions, and companion personal stories, he guides us on a global journey, weaving together place, people, craft, and story with the human thread that connects us all. Each section of the book features an array of exceptional photographs that shows a region’s peoplemost often portraits of artisans working in ancient traditionsas well as surprising glimpses of culture and environment. From a high altitude soccer match in Peru to silk weavers in Laos, exotic locales are made personal through intimate portraits, the work of hands, and everyday life captured, not by an observer, but by a participant, a fellow companion on the journey.
