About the Author

Bernhard Edmaier (b.1957) trained as a civil engineer and geologist and has photographed the earth's surface for over 15 years. The result of meticulous planning and research, his extraordinary travels take him from the endless deserts of Africa to the ice plains of Iceland and the coral cliffs of the Great Barrier Reef. His abstractly beautiful compositions offer an awe-inspiring view of our planet


'these abstractly beautiful compositions offer an awe-inspiring view of the planet. ... the photographs appear more like art than a geological survey. In fact, it's enough to send viewers into a bit of a trance. And once we've scooped our jaws off the floor, perhaps this book will help us respect this marvelous planet a bit more.' Wonderland, April 2007 'the book has a natural rhythm that matches the organic quality of the imagery ... an inspiration to photographers and artists alike' Outdoor Photography, May 2007 'breathtaking' Sunday Express, 13 May 2007
