An excerpt from The Sheltering Sky by Paul Bowles - a dark, haunting adventure story of a New York couple travelling in remote north Africa after World War II. Set against a backdrop of powerful, intensely observed desert landscape, Bowles describes this book as 'a combination of memory writing and minute descriptions of whatever place I was in at that moment'.
Here are some of my 'road' photographs - taken in the Scottish Hebrides, north west Brittany and Wales.
