"[Michael Poliza's]… AFRICA is unlikely to change the way you think about Africa. But it might change the way you think about photography." (The New York Times)
Michael Poliza's "Eyes over Africa" won 1st place in the 2008 International Photography Awards under the nature book category.
In 2006, to fulfill a long-held dream, widely acclaimed photographer Michael Poliza and friend Stefan Breuer undertook a helicopter journey across Africa. Skimming close to the ground, they flew over 19 countries. Poliza's alluring—and often surprising—photographs share this exceptional journey with the world. With a bird's-eye view, we witness the astounding beauty, scale and diversity of this imposing continent. The accompanying texts give a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the photographs, and brief background to some of the most fascinating subject matters.
Michael Poliza is a true adventurer. Most recently, millions have been following his expeditions via the Internet. He spends much of each year in Africa, and is a pioneer in the use of digital photography for illustrated books. His previous books for teNeues, Africa (978-3-8327-9127-8) and The Essential Africa (978-3-8327-9197-1), have become bestsellers.
