This lends itself as a multi-cultural coffee table book. It is mostly photos with text describing the photo. It can be quite informative. I love that the photos sometime show realistic conditions rather than just a zoomed in portrait. After traveling internationally I realized how often reality is filtered from us.
After reading Alison Wright's story of her accident and recovery in Learning to Breathe, I wanted to view her photography.

These photographs are beautiful, inspiring and heart-wrenching. Alsion Wright is a treasure.
