.....For Meola, travel and personal work have become deeply intertwined. It is, he says, travel to the far-flung corners of the world that have continually inspired him:

"I've always tried to take a month off every year, two weeks here, two weeks there, or a full month and go somewhere I've never been before. Every year the trips have been getting more and more exotic. It's not that the great stuff isn't in your own back yard, it probably is, but photographers by their nature love to travel and there are a lot of things that I have wanted to see."
