Summer is winding down, yet we still have traveling on our minds!
Last week I posted crafty ways to turn vacation memories into art. My posting coincided with the return of my world-traveling friends, the McMiniens, who spent the last twelve months trekking the planet and immersing themselves into cultures far beyond our work cubicles.
Francis Minien, a British born photographer, had the brilliant idea to narrate his journey across the world through a visual diary. The diary, entitled “1 Day 1 Photograph”, features a photo from each day of their adventure that, as Francis states, “captures what I feel best conveys the day or the experience of the day”.
Below is a selection of photographs from the journal. They can be purchased by contacting Francis through hiswebsite.

Francis Minien has won prestigious awards for his photography, including nominations into the 2010 Photographer’s Forums International juried photography show and the 2011 Paris de la Photographie. He has recently published abook entitled “Festival: A View from the Crowd”. Learn more about Francis’s work in progress onBrown Monkey. Follow Francis on Facebook and TwitterandFlickr.
