Poetically seen, water is the source of all life. Technically, water is the only compound on our planet which exists in all three states: liquid, frozen solid as ice, and as gaseous steam. Edmaier also sees the beauty of the multifaceted element in all of its colors, shapes and structures. The complex natural spectacles found by the geologist and photographer have now been published in a new illustrated book by Prestel Publishing.
We present his breathtaking view of our planet. And since we could hardly make up our minds at the sight of so much natural beauty, we asked the photographer to show us his favorite motifs, to which he also provided a short description.
Water is sometimes constructive, sometimes destructive, and sometimes both at once – but whatever the case, it has always formed the beauty of the earth. It gives plants the necessary moisture, transports sand and rocks to other areas in a constant flow, forms valleys and canyons, islands, beaches, glaciers, and deeply circulating in the earth's crust, it even causes volcanic eruptions. In 220 color illustrations, Edmaier enchants with his shots from a bird's-eye view, which appear as painter studies with playful use of graphics and colors.
Bernhard Edmaier became famous in 2004 with his illustrated book "Earthsong", and was also awarded the renowned Hasselblad Master Award (2001). Edmaier was a geologist before he switched to photography – and the knowledge of this science still serves as the foundation for his work. In cooperation with the texts of geologist and scientific publisher Dr. Angelika Jung-Hüttl, the diverse photo, exhibition and book projects were created.
