When Gloucestershire-based travel photographer Peter Adams first saw the miles of tulip fields that stretched across the landscape of North Holland, he knew knew he would return in an aircraft. Having shot everywhere from Iceland to Namibia, the photographer explains aerial photography “always gives [him] a high that lasts days.” Years after his initial trip, Adams kept tabs on the tulip season through bed and breakfast proprietors living near the fields, and he journeyed back just prior to the harvest.

Driven by what he describes as his “insatiable curiosity,” Santa Barbara-based photographer Brian Hodges is continuously reaching towards terra incognita, always in search of forming connections with unexplored landscapes and peoples. For Assouline’s upcoming book Gypset Living, he documented life in the traditional nomadic communities of Mongolia and lived himself in a traditional Mongolian ger. These families, he explains, migrate based on the season and the needs of their animals, who require ample grazing space and safeguarding from extreme temperatures.
