Captured in vivid color, the moments that photographer Stefan Forster uncovers in out-of-the-way places in nature take place on adventurous backcountry trips far from civilization, where he carries up to 80 pounds in camera gear and camping equipment. With enormous enthusiasm but still prepared for anything, he frequently hikes through remote areas for weeks at a time on his seek for the odd. He has taken long solo kayak trips along Greenland’s west coast, hopped from island to island in Micronesia, and slogged through the swamps of Louisiana and Texas to find the area’s most beautiful cypress trees, all of the whilst dodging alligators. His method yields unique, fascinating photos. This book shows this youthful photographer’s “greatest hits” to date: everything from rare rainstorms on the earth’s driest desert and the Northern Lights shimmering through icebergs, to spectacular shots of the Rocky Mountains. Forster used to be one of the crucial first photographers to use state of the art quadcopter drones to give his photos fresh, new perspectives. Stefan Forster published a few of these aerial pictures in Above the World – Earth Through a Drone’s Eye, released by teNeues in September 2016.
