    Providing a unique glimpse into the lens of a World War II merchant mariner, this collection chronicles personal, life-defining experiences beginning and ending on America's east coast, and circumnavigating the globe in between. This photographic essay is the crowning work of a humble man who embraced art to capture history and celebrate the American experience.  His voyage leads to the sandy shores of Normandy, the horror of Hiroshima, and on to a triumphant return to the port of Los Angeles. These destinations and Niewenhous' postwar travels — to the Caribbean, South America, the Philippines, and ultimately back home to the back roads of his native America — form the fabric of a vibrant 60-year journey. Memorialized in this rare photographic collection, these images capture the human condition, risky circumstances, forbidden passages, and stunning natural vistas.
