Cynthia Bassett

A highly successful business woman and life-long traveler, Cynthia Bassett began exploring remote corners of the globe more than thirty-five years ago. While most of us are content to comfortably relax in tourist resorts, Cynthia becomes immersed in primitive cultures that are often only accessible by roads least traveled. She's braved the most basic accommodations, political conflict, and intolerable climates to bring the world's diversity to your doorstep.

 

Cynthia’s adventures have taken her to all seven continents. A curious and perceptive traveler, she has an intuitive knack for absorbing tribal traditions that have remained unchanged for thousands of years. She translates these experiences into vibrant photographic presentations that help us to intimately and authentically connect with ancient villages many of which are on the brink of extinction.

Her rich and colorful photographs have appeared in the Junior Worldmark Encyclopedia of the Nations and are vividly displayed in her Pepper Pike, (outside Cleveland) Ohio executive office alongside many professional awards.  Cynthia is a member of the world-wide, invitational Circumnavigators Club, founded in 1902.

Sit back and relax as you join Cynthia with the sights and sounds of journeys into unfamiliar cultures and territories.

"Cynthia Bassett's  DVDs present dramatic photographs of peoples and places in the far corners of the world. Her narrative has a truly lyric quality. How lucky we are to have her works at hand - our own travel guru." - Helga Sandburg Crile, Poet


"The beauty of varied Third World settings has caught the eye and tugged at the sympathetic heart of photographer Cynthia Bassett. In her magnificent DVD series, images of nature and culture in little-traveled scenes of Myanmar, Bhutan, China and Sri Lanka and along the Silk Road are illuminated by a vibrant commentary that links ancient pasts of the nations visited with hopes for their future."  Albert I. Borowitz,  author and retired attorney
