Additional Information

This remarkable vision of Africa from the air invites the reader to view this large and varied continent as if an invited guest on a private plane, with a dialogue between the photographer and the viewer. Aerial photography enables the viewer to experience places that are virtually impossible to experience from the ground- terrain that cannot be reached via any other means (whether it is remote stretches of desert, marshy deltas, or other inaccessible habitats or regions). The images in Through the Eyes of the Gods are reproduced as large double page spreads of 22" by 15," enabling the viewer to absorb the abstract qualities of the images and become absorbed in them. While the images are uniquely beautiful, many also show the fascinating effects of large-scale environmental change on the landscape. From the air, viewers can appreciate the timelessness of the landscape and understand that, if properly preserved, it can remain unspoiled for future generations. The book is organized around themes that include herds, loners (large individual mammals like elephants and hippos), man and man's impact, water, desert, pathways, and ancient sites. The text essays punctuate the photos, with each exploring themes important to understanding Africa, like the importance of water to the continent, or of man's impact on the land. "Photographer's Notes" also appear throughout the book, intro-ducing the photographer's voice in pieces written by Bobby Haas about his adventures in the field. Destinations included are: Southern Africa: South Africa, Namibia, Botswana Western Africa: Senegal, Gambia, Morocco, Canary Islands Northern Africa: Ethiopia, Djibouti Eastern Africa: Kenya, Tanzania Coastal Africa: Northern and Southern Indian Ocean
