Everything Else in the Universe: A Father-Son Road Trip

A Photobook by Har-Prakash and Gurudayal Khalsa

In April 2017, our family road tripped through the national and state parks in Utah. Family sweetened our travel, and travel refreshed our familial relationships. Eight days after we set out, the others returned home, and as father and son, we continued our photographic journey in California for another sixteen days.

The process of creating this book over the last year and a half was similar to how we travelled. We changed our minds frequently as to which direction to go. How many classic landscape or family portraits should be included? Colour or black and white? After much pushing and pulling our decisions were made together in the spirit of what the book seemed to want.

“A father and son, photography in both their DNA as we witness in this extraordinary volume, take pictures. The journey serves as a rite of passage for the son, just as in the original Odyssey a son comes of age by helping his father.  We read this book with appreciation for the creative partnership that brought it to fruition and marvel at the astonishing depictions of natural wonders… We come close to the artists who forged the gift of this book, and closer to Creation, as a result of their work.In short, this book is an inspiration. For me it led immediately to the thought that a journey with my adult children remains a possibility to be realized, that beholding together the miracles of Nature or the works of human beings could be a shared experience we could create. Will create.   Thank you, Har-Prakash and Gurudayal.”
— Dr. Gabor Maté

This is an excerpt from the foreword of Everything Else in the Universe: A Father-Son Road Trip. The full foreword was written by Dr. Gabor Maté and his son Daniel Maté.

This book is dedicated to John Muir, “Father of the National Parks” for his role in helping to preserve the wilderness areas of the United States, and to the bond between fathers and sons, parents and children everywhere.

The title of our book comes from the John Muir quote, "When we try to pick out anything by itself, we find it hitched to everything else in the universe."

Like the roots of the Muir Woods redwoods, the photographs of a father and son team intertwine, support and complement each other. They are further enhanced by you. It is a gift to have you join us.
