The latest book by the award-winning photographer Bernhard Edmaier presents his stunning vistas of water in awe-inspiring views of our planet. In his seminal photography books, Bernhard Edmaier captures
dreamy, color-saturated, seemingly abstract images of earth
from above. In this new volume, Edmaier looks at water—from
both the air and the ground—as a source of life and one of the
most important landscape-shaping forces on earth. Readers
will be enthralled by Edmaier’s stunning shots of water in all
its forms—rivers and streams, deltas and floodplains, surging
on the coasts, frozen in glaciers, as vaporous clouds, and the
spray over erupting volcanoes. Edmaier covers familiar and farflung
locations on every continent: from Alaska to the American
Southwest; Costa Rica to Chile and Argentina; Canada,
Greenland, and Russia; from Germany and Switzerland, to Italy,
Croatia, Iceland, and Norway; from Djibouti to Kenya, Tanzania,
Namibia, and the Democratic Republic of Congo; along with
Australia, New Zealand, and Antarctica. His pictures not only
document the beauty of these places but they also tell a story
of the changes our earth and its water systems are undergoing
as the result of climate change—from desertification to Arctic
thaw and rising sea levels. Presented in an extra-large format
that magnifies both the intensity and the details of Edmaier’s
work, this extraordinary and important book documents water’s
power to create and destroy; to give life and take it away.
