A Sum of One is a compilation of photographs from nine years of travel to six continents. While the photographs (landscapes, streets, people, and abstract) are a documentation, their existence is deeply personal and contemplative to the photographer. The courage to take the journey outward leads to a healing journey inward by the emotional connectivity and embraceable response received. The journey, chances for illumination and cultural tributes aim to create a positive stimulus of growth in the reader.
Derek Schrock is a world traveler and self-taught photographer who picked up the medium as a means to communicatively engage while wandering solo to far reaching lengths.
