How often does the most important story about a continent have to be told? And—what’s maybe even more important: how should it be depicted and presented?
Florian Wagner, adventurer, globetrotter, and photographer, never at a loss for an answer, decided: This could only be done on a massive scale. From so far above that the beholder is able to comprehend the dimensions of the continent and of the subject at one glance: The situation of Africa and the water. And so, maps were studied, long-term weather forecasts consulted, permits obtained, helicopters chartered, air routes determined, and the entire continent looked at and photographed from the appropriate height and with a 360-degree view.
The result is a spectacular book in extraordinary landscape format that does justice to the panorama images as well as to the relevance of the subject: Africa and the history of animals and humans, of development and politics, of drought and abundance.
