Bernhard Edmaier is a photographer who also happens to have training as a geologist and he uses his knowledge to create stunning images of earth, from the sky as well as on land, that educate as well as bring pleasure to those who view them.
In his latest title - WATER - images of rivers, deltas, floodplains, glaciers and more grace the pages of this large-format book which really is a treat for the eyes.
The abstract images which show water in all its forms are vibrant, sharp and full of interest. The shapes, created from the force of water flowing over terrain, give our planet an abstract quality that are only really noticed when a camera captures the beauty of them from the air. The important story of climate change is also told through Edmaier's title with subjects such as rising sea levels touched upon.
The book takes the reader right around the world and as well as images, useful captions are presented alongside to further educate and inform.
Those who are fans of abstract pieces will certainly enjoy this book as too will nature lovers who just appreciate the beauty of the landscape that surrounds us.
Prestel describe the title as an 'important book that documents water's power to create and destroy; to give life and take it away' and we have to say, it's a perfect description that sums this collection of watery vistas up perfectly.
