Twenty years ago Traub abandoned all pretense of trying to find specific themes and subjects in his photographic wanderings other than to make 'Taradiddles', embracing fully the digital image which is always questioned for its further and inherent potential for distortion. Ironically, the witty and sardonic juxtaposition of Traub’s images, are only a matter of framing his discoveries - here, there and everywhere.

This volume is a collection of trifles that become matters of remarkable social commentary when Traub photographs them - “For me, serendipity, coincidence and chance are more interesting than any preconceived construct of our human encounters.” (Charles H. Traub) - in a hundred plus images Traub seems to have captured the common incongruities of a global society.

Traub took these pictures in more than 60 cities around the world: Dubai, Shanghai, Beijing, Rome, Tunis, Buenos Aires, Budapest, Moscow, St. Petersburg, Santo Domingo, New York, just to name a few.
