Captured in vivid colour, the moments that photographer Stefan Forster uncovers in out-of-the-way places in nature take place on adventurous backcountry trips far from civilisation, where he carries up to 80 pounds in camera gear and camping equipment. With enormous enthusiasm but still prepared for anything, he often hikes through remote areas for weeks at a time on his search for the extraordinary. He has taken long solo kayak trips along Greenland's west coast, hopped from island to island in Micronesia, and slogged through the swamps of Louisiana and Texas to find the area's most beautiful cypress trees, all the while dodging alligators. His method yields unique, fascinating photos. This book shows this youthful photographer's greatest hits to date: everything from rare rainstorms in the world's driest desert and the Northern Lights shimmering through icebergs, to spectacular shots of the Rocky Mountains. Forster was one of the first photographers to use state-of-the-art quadcopter drones to give his photos fresh, new perspectives. Stefan Forster published some of these aerial pictures in 'Above the World Earth Through a Drone's Eye', released by teNeues in September 2016. AUTHOR: Swiss photographer Stefan Forster spent most of his childhood in the great outdoors. At the tender age of seventeen, he went on a solo eighteen-day hike through the southern Highlands of Iceland, where he discovered his love of photography. Just a few years later, his passion became his profession, and he opened his own photography academy. Now thirty, Forster spends six months of the year traveling the world and holds twelve workshops annually to guide clients to our planet's most beautiful places. He spends about two months of the year in Iceland, his second home SELLING POINTS:
