Volcano : A Photographic Collection - Peter Elliston

Volcano

A Photographic Collection

By: Peter Elliston (Photographer)

Sorry, the book that you are looking for is not available right now.

We did a search for other books with a similar title, and found some results for you that may be helpful.

Volcano is a stunning collection of photographs by Peter Elliston that depict people and the landscape at volcanoes in various countries, including some remarkable images from an ascent of the active volcano Ol Doinyo Lengaiu in Tanzania.

The books publication coincided with an exhibition at the Manly Art Gallery in June-July 2007. Since gallery space is limited, the book included many images that had not been on display in the exhibition. An essay by Peter Ellison was also included in the book.

The photographs cover active and extinct volcanoes in Tanzania, Chile, PNG, Vanuatu, Italy, Hawaii, Indonesia and Japan.

Peter Ellison has climbed many volcanoes to add to his portfolio of photographs, sometimes at personal risk. The photographs are not just about the beauty and majesty of volcanoes but also refer to the presence of modern visitors and ancient worshippers like the Incas in South America.
