Overview

An exciting addition to White Star's renowned aerial presentation series, this handsome, compact volume takes readers on a memorable trip over Africa, giving them a rare glimpse of its spectacular, diverse landscapes and wildlife. Photojournalist Paolo Novaresio shares with readers his love of Africa in a portfolio of photographs that transports us to a land that remains, in many ways, wild and untamed. He captured unparalleled pictures of animal herds, savannahs, deserts, and deep jungle by using various means of aerial transport, including a montgolfier, a helicopter, and a twin-engine plane. His unique photographic techniques showcase the topography, light, and color of an entire region at a glance. More than 550 color photographs reveal a hidden Africa that readers could never experience without the benefit of these stunning above-ground views. Among the regions and countries photographed are Northern Africa and the Sahara Desert, Central Africa, Tanzania, Niger, Congo, Kenya, Ethiopia, Southern Africa, Botswana, Namibia, Zimbabwe, and South Africa.
