THE BLIND DIARIES
10 years on - by Phil and Allie Dunnington
The couple’s own backgrounds and thought processes differ widely, yet the cultures they sample vary from Kim Jung Il’s neo-Stalinist North Korea to New Zealand’s Antipodean parliamentary democracy and Namibia’s post-Apartheid struggle with poverty and crime.
Phil and Allie wrote daily about what they saw and who they met – the good, bad and awful of 14 countries - without once revealing the content of their diaries to each other. The accompanying photographic record helps illustrate some of their experiences and illuminate their emotions and reactions.
Such a complex combination of personalities has rarely been observed in so much detail.This is the story of their four month journey together around the world covering over 50,000km and all six inhabited continents.
