WATER: PHOTOGRAPHS BY BERNHARD EDMAIER. Angelika Jung-Huttl. Prestel-Verlag, Munich, 2015. 240 pp. with 208 ills. (202 col.). 36 x 30 cm. ISBN 9783791381657 In English.
Large format. Publisher's description: 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.
