The result of a five-year airborne odyssey across five continents and 60 countries, Earth from Above is the most revealing and spectacular portrait of our world ever created. From a heart-shape mangrove forest in New Caledonia to a flock of red ibises in Venezuela, from a caravan of camels in Mauritania to Mount Everest and Mammoth Hot Springs, renowned aerial photographer Yann Arthus-Bertrand presents striking color images that put our home planet in a whole new perspective. Produced under the sponsorship of UNESCO, the book is also a documentary record of the state of the world’s fragile environment. This vibrant new edition of the internationally acclaimed original features an updated design and nearly 60 stunning new photographs. All-new captions and the addition of authoritative new texts by experts in various environmental fields illuminate Arthus-Bertand’s monumental achievement.
