From a blazing sunset over Antarctic ice to Tokyo’s nighttime street racers to coffee with Brazilian cowboys as the dawn breaks, this book is an unparalleled feast for the eyes, and a never-before-collected glimpse into a world that comes to life as most of us are sleeping. Highlights include:

– Africa: Hustle and bustle in Morocco’s nighttime markets.
– Asia: Balinese fire dancers.
