Editions Didier Millet and Select Books are pleased to invite you to the book launch of Volcanoes of Indonesia, on Friday, November 30, 2012 at 7:00pm at Select Books.
About Volcanoes of Indonesia
As part of the Ring of Fire, Indonesia is home to some of the world’s most active volcanoes and Volcanoes of Indonesia pays tribute to these mighty forces that have dramatically determined the landscape of Indonesia.
Combining the poignant images of Carl-Bernd Kaehlig with the prose and poems of Andrew Wight and Chris Smith, this beautiful photo album showcases the many faces and moods of the volcanoes as well as the life that revolves around them. From sunset and sunrise scenes of brooding volcanoes to tortured rock formations shaped by centuries of erosion, from steaming lakes and craters to isolated flowering plants in sheltered niches, sacred mountain temples and bathing places, this awe-inspiring album will strike a chord in all who respond to the allure of the mystical and the sublime.
About the Photographer
Carl-Bernd Kaehlig was born in Hannover, Germany, in 1951 and has lived in Indonesia for about 19 years. His interest in outdoor photography started with a backpacking tour through South-east Asia in 1977. His photographs have appeared in group and single exhibitions in Germany and Indonesia. He has also contributed travel photo essays to magazines such as Silver Kris, the Singapore Airlines inflight magazine, and Garuda, the inflight magazine of Garuda Indonesia Airlines. The combination of his keen interest in photography with his love for hiking resulted in this photo book on Indonesian volcanoes. His other photo books are Chinatown Rhythm & Blues on Singapore’s Chinatown and Art in Hindsight: Indonesian Truck Paintings.
