From the introduction text

This is not just another photography book. It is a message to all those who want to discover what a street means to society, education, wisdom, youth, experience, happiness, stories, food and so much more. You will not find esthetics competing with constructions to impress the public. This is raw material, directly from the guts of a global traveller focussing on the essential streets. The street represents the culture, colours, rituals, maybe even the history of the city and country where he found them. The street is a meeting place, a platform of crowds, a centre of news and gossips, the working spot of salesmen and prostitutes, the playground of their children, the ultimate enemy of solitude and anonimity. Imagine going to almost two hundred different countries searching for that one street (or sometimes harbour or railwaystation) that symbolizes a whole community.

The street is adventure, emotion, tension, pressure, leasure. It is food, it is drink, it is market. The street is the connection between people, their last hope for new beginnings, the mother of intimacy. Without streets we would be lost, haunting the world without directions, without points of reference. Without streets there would be no communication, no organisation, no structure. In other words: the street is everything. The street is us, is me, is you. Thinking of streets I wonder why I always took them for granted. They are actually one of man’s greatest inventions.
