Familiar Touch: Moments in Time (The Journey) is a work of non-fiction presented in the form of an artistic photography book, and was created by Dr. Robert M. Wright. The work chronicles a literal, figurative, and emotional journey taken by the author from around 1995 onwards, and is set amongst the culture and lifestyle of the Caribbean. Traveling across different islands and capturing moments of poignancy, beauty, and thought-provoking imagery, the work considers the disasters of Hurricanes Irma and Maria as well as the struggles and joys of everyday life. These moments are accompanied by quotations, some religious, some historical, and some more modern, to provide thinking points and highlight the emotion of each image.
Author and creator Dr. Robert M. Wright has crafted a fascinating work that will pique the interest of anyone who spies it waiting on a coffee table. The presentation, layout, and image selection are beautiful, with real talent on display for capturing both the stark destruction and beauty of nature and the most emotive, silent moments of people going about their lives. I found the quotations and textual content that has been chosen for different images highly appropriate, mixing the familiar with the more obscure to give genuine pause for thought. The message of empathy, and of putting ourselves into the shoes of others, is highly impactful and humbling. Overall, I would definitely recommend Familiar Touch: Moments in Time (The Journey) to anyone with an interest in photography, but also readers searching for a mindful moment to connect to art and culture.
