In a rich and varied stage and screen career that brought him an Oscar in 1972 for Cabaret, the actor Joel Grey has spent a lot of time on the road.

His camera has been a companion on those travels, and he recently published a coffee-table style collection. It's called Pictures I Had to Take.

NPR's Liane Hansen recently spoke with Grey about images captured over nearly four decades, from Melbourne, Australia to Puerta Vallarta, Mexico.
