The World

Poliza’s pictures pay homage to the incredible beauty and diversity of our planet and at the same time a warning about what is at stake due to climate change, species extinction and tourism for the sake of tourism. With an additional new essay on the subject of climate change, species protection and overtourism and texts by the renowned travel journalist Sophy Roberts Michael Poliza is more than a seasoned globetrotter who has traveled through almost 170 countries. He is also a collector of the world, always on the lookout for breathtaking landscapes, remote regions, and intact nature reserves. With his camera ever on hand, Poliza does not only want to experience the beauty of the planet, but also to make it accessible to all. In his two great books, Africa and Eyes over Africa, as well as his single volumes on South Africa, Kenya, and Namibia, Poliza opened our eyes to the diversity of the African continent. In AntArctic, the WWF ambassador created a sensitive double portrait of the polar regions. And in his characteristic aerial photographs, he even opened up new perspectives on well-known places like Mallorca. Over the last 10 years, Poliza has set out again and again to find, interpret and photograph his favorite places on all seven continents and to collect the pictures in his treasure chest. Now the moment has come to share his remarkable travel portfolio. With this book, we voyage with him to Australia and New Zealand, to Vietnam and Myanmar, to the west of the USA and northern Canada, to Bolivia and the Galapagos Islands, to Antarctica, and through Africa. Together, these pictures form a spectacular portrait of our planet in all its beauty, diversity, and its vulnerability.
