Oddyssey is a quirky photo journal of one man’s trip around the world – without leaving Ohio. The photographs show the author visiting 42 “foreign” towns in Ohio. With humor and style the traveler visits towns from Moscow to Mesopotamia, Congo to Calcutta, Aberdeen to York by way of Utopia and scores of other unlikely places all found in America’s heartland. As foreign as the place names are, the towns are distinctly American. The photographs connect mid-America with the larger world. Oddyssey speaks to everyone’s sense of place.
