The Ends of The Earth
X
Roger Willemsen travelled five continents to find his very own ends of the earth. Some ends were great and geographic: the Cape in South Africa, Patagonia, the Himalayas, the Southern Pacific, the North Pole. Others were much more personal and unique: the dimly lit corridor of a Mumbai brothel, a hospital ward in Minsk, a fresco of Judgment Day in Orvieto, a government office in the Congo. Yet these striking psychogeographic portraits also relate a different kind of end: an end to love and lust, to illusions, to order and understanding. The Ends of the Earth is about the end of life – and a fresh start.

Roger Willemsen is a German author, foreign correspondent and broadcaster. His work has been recognized through the Adolf Grimme Award, the Rinke Prize and the Julius Campe Award. Five of his books have featured on Der Spiegel.
