Book Talk: Backpacker-photographer shows China through unfiltered lens

Q: What else are you working on now? What are your goals?

A: "My head is just exploding with ideas ... I've got about five different book projects on the burner as we speak - in addition to teaching full time, which I do in Shanghai, and in addition to starting a family."

Q: Why have you only returned to the United States once?

A: "I don't feel there's anything in America for me right now. I see myself as a citizen of the world and I'd rather just keep traveling and seeing as much of the world as possible. And I think actually more people need to do that. I think travel and immersing yourself in new cultures - that's the key - that's the secret to world peace. War's not actually working."
