Roger Willemsen travelled five continents to find his very own ends of the earth. Some ends were great and geographic: the Cape in South Africa, Patagonia, the Himalayas, the Southern Pacific, the North Pole. Others were much more personal and unique: the dimly lit corridor of a Mumbai brothel, a hospital ward in Minsk, a fresco of Judgment Day in Orvieto, a government office in the Congo. Yet these striking psychogeographic portraits, 18 of which are introduced below, also relate a different kind of end: an end to love and lust, to illusions, to order and understanding. The Ends of the Earth is about the end of life – and a fresh start.
