They climb on vulcanos on Hawaii, they spend the night on the summit of the Alpspitze. They travel through the Kalahari desert, they go climbing in the Elbe Sandstone Mountains. They observe animals in the Arctic, the rain forest and they are always taking photos. Now they reveal, how. "Five NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC Photographers" are revealing a succession of well kept secrets with the motto "photography in all situations", pictures often taken under absurd conditions, all individual and authentic.
The elaborate project, realized on 20 locations from Kamchatka to the Seychelles, was turned into a magnificent photographic book with breathtaking motifs and personal texts, containing an unmatched intensity. For example mountain specialist Bernd Ritschel, at minus 25 degrees on the Zugspitze: A familiar clicking sound and the camera is fixed with quick connect. My adrenaline level is rising. In the course of the next two hours I am exposing 20 roll films and numerous digital pictures... In the mountains I get this goose bumpy feeling again and again which, in relation to my work, carries me through life. A tribute to photography, compelling in its composition and brilliant in every detail as inspiration, illustrated book, photo guidebook or just to marvel at.
