From inside jacket flap: Sylvia Plachy has spent much of her career working on so-called commercial assignments around the world. Sylvia always manages to transcend the quotidian and bring home photographs that border on the surreal in their juxtapositions; photographs that are perhaps best described as angelic in their feel -- full of empathy for humanity.... Accompanying the reader's journey through Unguided Tour -- and directly inspired by its photgraphs-- is an original music composition by noted singer, songwriter, and musician Tom Waits.
