Synopsis: Extreme Earth represents an extraordinary achievement in exploration and photography. One of the world’s leading documentary photographers, Michael Martin has devoted many years to this vast project, which surveys the four climate zones where extremes of temperature and drought prevail: the Arctic, the deserts of the Northern Hemisphere, the deserts of the Southern Hemisphere, and the Antarctic. He has ridden his motorbike across the Sahara, the Namib, and the Atacama deserts; traversed the ice of Greenland and Spitsbergen by dog sledge; flown by helicopter to the South Pole and the pristine expanses of Antarctica; and reached the North Pole on skis. His high standards of exploration and reporting are reflected not only in his photography, but also in the book’s scientifically exact maps and its texts written by experts in a wide variety of fields.
 

About the Author: Michael Martin is a photographer, speaker, adventurer, and geographer. For more than 30 years, he has reported on the extreme climates of the world in books, lectures, films, and television shows. He has won numerous awards for his work, including the Cherry Kearton Medal & Award from the Royal Geographical Society.

Book Description Michael Martins »Extreme Earth« stellt eine außergewöhnliche Leistung in der Erforschung und Fotografie dar. Martin, einer der weltweit führenden Dokumentarfotografen, widmet sich seit vielen Jahren diesem umfangreichen Projekt, das die vier Klimazonen untersucht, in denen extreme Temperaturen und Dürren herrschen: die Arktis, die Wüsten der nördlichen Hemisphäre, die Wüsten der südlichen Hemisphäre und die Antarktis. In über 35 Reisen hat er mit seinem Motorrad die Sahara, die Namib und die Atacama-Wüste, mit Hundeschlitten das Eis Grönlands und Spitzbergens durchquert, ist mit dem Hubschrauber zum Südpol und den unberührten Weiten der Antarktis geflogen und hat den Nordpol auf Skiern erreicht. Durch Martin taucht den Leser in die Größe dieser Landschaften und die Kultur der Völker ein, die sie bewohnen. Seine hohen Ansprüche an Erkundung und Berichterstattung spiegeln sich nicht nur in seiner Fotografie wider, sondern auch in den wissenschaftlich exakten Karten und Texten, die von Experten aus den verschiedensten Bereichen verfasst wurden. Mit Martins Fotografie und dem dazugehörigen Text ist »Extreme Earth« eine atemberaubend umfassende Quelle für die riesigen Wüsten der Erde. (Text engl.) 30 x 35 cm, 448 S., zahlr. farb. Abb., geb.
