Douglas Carr, a shoe salesman from the small town of Ingersoll, Ontario, spent thirty months traveling around the world in 1938, cycling from London to Cairo and through Africa to Cape Town. 30 moons many hands tells his story with an outdoor projection that also offers a glimpse into the Archives of Ontario where his photographs, films, journals, and letters have been catalogued and preserved.

This mobile enhanced website contains various documents, letters, and newspaper clippings from Carr’s journey. Follow @Carr_Diaries on Twitter to read some of Carr’s journal entries. You can also watch the installation video in its entirety.

30 moons many hands was presented at the HASTAC 2013 conference, April 25-28 at York University, Toronto, Canada.
