Book Description

31 Aug 2007
In 2006, to fulfill a long-held dream, widely acclaimed photographer Michael Poliza and friend Stefan Breuer undertook a helicopter journey across Africa. Skimming close to the ground, they flew over 17 countries on their zigzag route from Hamburg to Cape Town. Poliza's alluring - and often surprising - photographs share this exceptional journey with the world. With a bird's-eye view, we witness the astounding beauty, scale and diversity of this imposing continent. The accompanying texts give a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the photographs and brief background to some of the most fascinating subject matters. A rare treat, both for the lover of fine photography and for the nature enthusiast.

5.0 out of 5 stars Rich and surprising 2 Jan 2008
By Dee James - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
I can only but dream of seeing as much of Africa as Michael Poliza has, but this book carries me along on his journey. The level of detail is incredible - the more I look at the images, the more I find that surprises, delights or intrigues. Many pictures are pure abstract - and then I flip to the back of the book, only to find they are acute observations on some fascinating aspect of the natural world. Sadly, this detailed record is now vital in an age when global warming is changing the face of Africa so quickly. Perhaps these images will inspire us all to make a difference.

5.0 out of 5 stars A personal favorite... 12 Nov 2007
By J. M. Chesbrough - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
Michael Poliza transcends the plane of all that is expected with a bird's-eye documentation of his travels across Africa. The photographs are breath-taking and SO vivid! It's rare to find landscape images, which break from convention as these ones do. Luminous and inspiring-they truly speak to something which is out of this word. I would highly recommend this book and have already bought a few to give out to my close friends as holiday gifts :)

5.0 out of 5 stars Africa - immortalised by Michael's photography 3 Dec 2007
By TJ Heneke - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
A truly beautiful book that gives the reader an immediate sense of the vast and immeasurable beauty of this grand continent. There is a vunerability in his work too. One gets the sense that even though the subject is grand and impressive it is all too fragile.
