Synopsis: Providing a unique glimpse into the lens of a World War II merchant mariner, this collection chronicles personal, life-defining experiences beginning and ending on America's east coast and circumnavigating the globe in between. This photographic essay is the crowning work of a humble man who embraced art to capture history and celebrate the American experience. His voyage leads to the sandy shores of Normandy, the horror of Hiroshima, and on to a triumphant return to the port of Los Angeles. These destinations and Niewenhous' postwar travels—to the Caribbean, South America, the Philippines, and ultimately back home to the back roads of his native America—form the fabric of a vibrant 60-year journey. Memorialized in this rare photographic collection, these images capture the human condition, risky circumstances, forbidden passages, and stunning natural vistas.
About the Author: Charles Niewenhous is a former World War II merchant mariner and a commercial photographer. He lives in Weston, Connecticut.
