Richard Siegel has traveled to over 100 nations with 3 trips around the world and many other years living abroad and from this we get Siegel Travel Photography.
The Siegel photographs vary in quality as the cameras used gained usability.

There are so many places like Afghanistan, Turkey, Pakistan, China, and even India that have changed so much they are no longer close to the amazing photos from Richard Siegel.
