What started as an 18 month long tour of Africa, ended up lasting 23 year long but wonderful years. With his modest demeanor, we're finally hearing about his amazing journey across the World. He drove in a Mercedes Benz G Wagon and now has over 500,000 miles tacked on. The vehicle has traveled the equivalent of 20 times around the planet and the best part is that he took his cameras along with him! Gunther travels with 2 film cameras, including a Leica M6.
We found this fantastic story in thanks to photographer David Lemke, who joined Gunther on one leg of his expedition. David graciously took and allowed us to showcase this shot of Gunther above.
The entire slide show, with narration, can be found at this link in slideshow format:
We can't embed the slideshow here, but this may be the best 5 minutes you spend today. Very few people get to see the world like Gunther does, and we're glad he's been able to share a part of that with all of us.
