R517.39

In 2016, Annemarie Terblanche moved continents for the third time in her adult life. Newly arrived in Europe, this documentary filmmaker took her smartphone and her curiosity and began to travel across the continent, discovering communities, cultures, histories, and streets old – and older. Street Stories of Europe is a book-length photo collage and written account reflecting on these travels

Painstaking historical research and personal context work together with the photos to bring “the Old World” to life – creating a testament to both the epic scale of European history, and the diversity of ordinary (extraordinary!) people to be found there.

 Inside, you’ll find a shop who that sells cubed earwax and zombie breath mints. You’ll learn about the Fado, and Portuguese workers who sing these aching songs. You’ll read about the invention of the door, and visit the Estonian island run entirely by women. You’ll go North, to giant country, and East, to old walled cities. You’ll find the histories of these places - from Spain’s Arabic past to Estonia’s Singing Revolution - and see the simple human-ness of people across this ancient continent.

 Whether you’re planning your own adventures; or just adventuring from an armchair, the street stories of Europe are ready to whisper and to sing to you.

 May they find you well.
