All aboard the Seeker’s Sightseeing Tour

Places to see, people to meet. Let’s take whizz around the Internet on the inaugural Seeker’s Sightseeing Tour.  No passport required.

Stopover 1:  Cape Town, South Africa

Invasive Species, Kraaifontein (2009)

In 1996 a palm tree appeared almost overnight in a suburb of Cape Town, South Africa. This was supposedly one of the world’s first ever disguised cell phone tower. Since then these trees have spread across the city, the country and the rest of the world.

Photographer Dillon Marsh has been documenting the trees in his “Invasive Species”  series exploring the relationship between the environment and the disguised towers of Cape Town and its surrounds.

Not since the Cottingley fairies mystery of 1917 has the world shown so much interest in fairy sightings. Now a professor from Manchester Metropolitan University has snapped images of what he claims are the tiny winged creatures whilst out photographing the Lancashire landscape over the last two years.

Stopover 3. The Lost Tribes

In 2009 Photographer Jimmy Nelson had an ambitious plan: to become a guest of 31 secluded and visually unique tribes.

“I wanted to witness their time-honoured traditions, join in their rituals and discover how the rest of the world is threatening to change their way of life forever. Most importantly, I wanted to create an ambitious aesthetic photographic document that would stand the test of time. A body of work that would be an irreplaceable ethnographic record of a fast disappearing world.”

Now you can explore the wonder of Angkor Wat without making a trek to Southeast Asia—and risk contributing to the damage of the site—to enjoy what the ruins have to offer. For the first time ever, Google Maps is granting users an up-close view of Angkor, through Google’s Street View project. Source
