$55.00
• Stunning images of the Nordic islands from one of Europe's most renowned nature photographers • Compiled over 14 years, and more than 80 trips by air, on water, and on land to Norway, Iceland, Greenland, and the Faroe Islands • With thrilling making-of and behind-the-scenes texts One of the most renowned nature photographers in Europe, Stefan Forster, documents the extraordinary Nordic islands. Over the course of more than 80 intrepid trips through Greenland, Iceland, Norway, and the Faroe Islands, Forster captures the epic landscapes, wildlife, and beauty of these far-flung isles. Forster's journey saw him walking hundreds of kilometers through the Highlands of Iceland, paddling a kayak along the west coast of Greenland, sailing on an old wooden ship through the mighty Scoresby Sound of East Greenland, and scaling one of the steepest cliffs on the Faroe Islands. His photographs capture not only these extraordinary landscapes, but also their native inhabitants: young polar foxes, musk ox families, sea eagles, and puffins. The result is a fascinating photographic portrait of some of the most remote and ruggedly beautiful places on earth. Text in English and German.
