The photographs in The Traveller span a period of 15 years or more and cover Harvey Benge's many journeys from the South Pacific through Asia to Paris, his European spiritual home.
Part fiction, part autobiography the book deals with Benge’s recurring themes of loss, and, as his self portraits attest, impermanence. The Traveller is a personal reflection of the world where strange connections occur. Benge’s photographs never offer answers, only questions to tempt the curious. His democratic view is an acerbic, wry response to the world in free-fall where nothing is certain. Yet there is humour, affection, hope and unexpected beauty.
