One Man’s Photos from an Epic Road Trip Spanning 26 Years, 177 Countries, and 500,000 Miles
A 76-year-old man named Gunther Holtorf is back home in Germany now after an epic road trip. How epic was it? It could very well be the world’s longest: the journey took 26 years, included 177 different countries around the world, and spanned nearly 550,000 miles.
All along the way, Holtorf carried two Leica cameras — a Leicaflex SL and a Leica M6 — to document the things he saw in the places he visited. The video above, featuring photographer David Lemke, offers a glimpse into Holtorf’s journey and photos.
