This marvellous photographic journey from the Atlantic to the Red Sea, reveals 10 million km2 of extreme aridity in Northern Africa known to the world as the Sahara.
Here is a book that invokes the fascinating and diverse beauty this desert, its spectacular dunes, stone fortresses, Eden-like oases, hellish sandstorms and magical effects of light.
From the white sands of Arguin (Mauritania) to the coloured banks of the Niger river (Mali), from the rock paintings of Tassili N'Ajjer (Algeria) to the unexpected lakes of Ennedi (Chad), and all the way to the white desert of Egypt, Bourseiller has captured the subtleties of the Great South - a naked, mineral environment enlivened by noble and splendid faces encountered along its scorched tracks.
About the Photographer
Following his fascinating work on volcanoes with volcano expert Jacques Durieux (Volcanoes, Abrams, 2001), Philippe Bourseiller was seized by a passion for the magical effects of light in the Sahara, its mineral environment and the men that inhabit it. Over a period of four years, he undertook six expeditions a year, often at great risks, constructing along the way a phenomenal monograph on the world's biggest desert. He has been awarded the prestigious World Press prize and the Visa d'Or at the international festival of Perpignan.
