As all of you FANATICS know, Henry Rollins travels the globe tirelessly. He keeps a log of his adventures on his KCRW program page through his show as well as the letters that accompany each show. However, recently he’s pulled together a visual collection of these journeys with a a camera
HENRY ROLLINS has just released his first book of photos taken over the course of his world travels during the past decade entitled Occupants: Photographs and Writings by Henry Rollins.
Henry paid a visit to KCRW’s All Things Considered to talk with Lisa Napoli about the new book. He described a slightly humbling encounter with this cigarette vendor on a busy street in Jogjakarta, Indonesia that led to this photo. Hear the audio below!
Congratulations to Henry. “Occupants” is currently #13 on the Los Angeles Times list of hard cover nonfiction books. Here are some nice things being said about the book!
“Punk-rock icon. Spoken word poet. Actor. Author. DJ. Is there anything this guy can’t do?” —Entertainment Weekly
“A whirlwind of gutting impressions to global cultures, Occupants unhinges what we know about being citizens of the world while challenging our conceptions.” —YRB Magazine
“It’s an impressive collection built entirely out of Rollins’ desire to expose readers to corners of the world they may otherwise never see.” —Wired.com
