Call of the Desert
thumbnail  
With its spectacular dunes, stone fortresses and utopian oases, the Sahara is the world’s vastest desert. It’s approximately 10 million square kilometers of sand offer a diversity of landscapes from Mauritania’s Banc d'Arguin and the colorful banks of the Niger River in Mali, to the rock paintings of Tassili N’Ajjer in Algeria and the Ennedi lakes in Chad. Through the beauty of these landscapes, photographer Philippe Bourseiller was able to capture the subtleties of the southern Sahara; mineral and devoid of vegetation, yet capable of sustaining life. This photographic journey across the Sahara will tempt you to a taste the desert, its life and its mysteries, while the texts written by academics will nourish your thirst for knowledge.

Gauchos De Patagonie
thumbnail  
Patagonia, land of exile for gauchos, these solitary, nomad riders whose life is set to the beat of stock breeding and wool trading, the seasons, and the weather. 

Traveling the wide open spaces of South America and visiting the estancias which dot them, Philippe Bourseiller draws the portrait of these men with great sensitivity, showing them fighting to maintain a unique way of life, with its ancestral traditions, on a land where Nature reigns. Open plains as far as the eye can see and thick forests – Patagonia, a land of excess. 

The photographer pays tribute to this little-known land and its fascinating inhabitants.

On the edge of the Arctic Ocean, Greenland is almost totally covered by a huge glacial icecap. Fascinated by this exceptional country, Janot Lamberton, the world record-holder for descending into ice, has organized expeditions combining physical prowess with scientific research since 1989.

From these travels into the heart of ice, in the center of the earth of magical unexplored places, he has brought back astonishing photographs, testimonies to a great human, and scientific, adventure.
Enriched with texts written by Janot Lamberton, Alain Couté - a phycologist (scientist specialized in algae), and Luc Moreau, a glaciologist, this work will help all readers understand what is at stake for scientific research and how the explorers conduct their daily life..

Volcanoes
thumbnail  
Testimonies to a world in creation, volcanoes have long been the subject of beliefs and superstitions. 
Expressions of the wrath of the gods for some civilizations, worshipped as a source of life and sign of divine clemency for others -- such as in Indonesia, volcanoes have been a part of Man's history since he took his first steps.
A sound and light show of Nature in perpetual movement and rebirth, volcanic activity is of primary importance to scientists. Even though volcanoes no longer cause as many deaths as they did in the past, they remain a threat to many populations. 
For over than ten years, Philippe Bourseiller has traveled across the planet to all the major volcanic sites. These photographs tell a story which began with the origins of the world.

Des Animaux et Des Femmes
thumbnail  
To live fully the life they love at the risk of great suffering, even at the risk of death because of it – this was the prodigious choice made by the twelve women who are the subject of this work. They share a common goal of wanting to save endangered animals and strive to make respect for wildlife apart of Humanity’s conscience. Alain Bougrain Dubourg's investigation and Yann Arthus Bertrand and Philippe Bourseiller's photographs show what the incredible strength of passion can engender.

Stephan Peyron, objectif Pôle
thumbnail  

 

In 1988, Stephan Peyron dared to do the unbelievable: reach the magnetic North Pole on a standard windsurf board during the most dangerous and spectacular time of the year – when the ice breaks up. Philippe Bourseiller followed Stephan's expedition and his spectacular photographs allow us to discover the ice floes, the currents, the fog, and the winds that are never ending. 
At each moment, dangers must be foreseen and all the strength a human possesses is put to the test. But the polar circle is also the walruses and polar bears playing under a permanently sunny sky – the myth of the end of the world and the beginning of true freedom.

Apocalypse Snow
thumbnail  
Like a signature on a blank page, the skier's tracks reveal his movement and his spirit. Without modesty, the tracks are a testimony to the intense and furtive feeling of sliding. Smooth or bumpy. Fast or slow. Cutting or skidding. These innumerable variations on movement are the author's expression of the emotions being experienced. First book to cover the experience of sliding on snow, the 120 richly illustrated pages of "Apocalypse Snow" gives frozen images of the perfect gesture that leads from emotion to ecstasy, from the world of men to the universe of gods.
