Klaus Mettig has traveled through numerous countries since 1973 in his search for photographs that tell the stories of peoples lives, cultures and relationships to their histories. This book combines breathtaking panoramas of Asian cities with portraits of their residents and restores to the term globalization the complexity which is often painfully absent in political discussions. Klaus Mettig, born in Brandenburg in 1950, attended the Independent Study Program of the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York in 1976-1977 and was awarded the Karl-Schmitt-Rottluff scholarship in 1984. He participated in documenta VII and the Shanghai Biennal, and has had solo exhibitions at the Kunsthalle Dusseldorf, the Van Abbe Museum Eindhoven and the Castello di Rivoli in Turin.
