Overview

This is a book about the beauty of nature—its force, its silence, its eternal existence—and a book about cities seen from above as they keep growing and threaten to suffocate us. Swiss photographer Balthasar Burkhard presents work shot over the last 10 years, images from Japan to the United States, from South America to Africa and the European Alps. In all these places he created photographs of a rare beauty—of jungles, deserts, winter and summer landscapes, trees, meadows, clouds, valleys, and nightscapes. The resulting images are intense and distinctly tied to their medium, images that could not be created without a photographic camera. In the end, Burkhard presents us not only with beauty, but with a visual vocabulary of the world we live in, one that is meditative and haunting, instilling peace and anxiety at the same time.
