Description

Editorial Reviews Amazon.com Review From Through the Eyes of the Vikings : Photographs by Robert B. Haas Click on the photos below to open larger images. Bay of Bothnia, Sweden Recycling pools beside a lumber facility near the port city of Karlsborg pock the landscape like shots through tempered glass. Red Glacier, Alaska Bergs and boulders form islands of ice and rock in the basin of the glacier. Kiruna, Sweden Snowmobile tracks crisscross the surface of a melting pond. Langøya Island, Norway Industrial byproducts form a swirling palette at a waste-treatment facility on this island south of Oslo. Iniskin Bay, Alaska The Iniskin River resembles a reflective ribbon of glass as it flows into its namesake bay. Neacola River, Alaska Sunlight sparkles along the river’s banks and its tidal flats. Disko Bay, Greenland Mother and calf humpback whales breach the electric-blue surface on the west coast of Greenland. Þórisjökull Glacier, Iceland Rows of stark white crosses punctuate a densely populated cemetery. From Booklist Aerial photographer Haas continues his magnificent Through the Eyes series, following volumes on Africa and Latin America with an on-the-wing tour of the Arctic Circle. Why through the eyes of the Vikings? Because of their “hardy and adventurous spirit of exploration and enterprise.” Not to mention pillaging. While humans are rarely in evidence in these dramatic aerial views, the fact is we are everywhere in this seemingly pristine realm in the insidious form of pollution and the rapidly increasing effects of global warming. That concern aside, Haas’ exquisitely patterned panoramas invite awed contemplation. The stunning variety of landscapes is a surprise, the grand spectrum of turquoises, whites, and earth tones an astonishment. Haas’ gaze reaches whales beneath the sea, and caribou, polar bears, Dall sheep, and Icelandic horses on vast vistas of ice, peatland, and mountains. Haas invites us to contemplate the Arctic’s forbidding yet endangered glory in the belief that the battle between those who would exploit it and those who would protect this wilderness will “test the contours of the human spirit itself.” --Donna Seaman See all Editorial Reviews

Continuing the aerial photography that gave such visual command to his previous National Geographic titles, Through the Eyes of the Gods: An Aerial Vision of Africa and Through the Eyes of the Condor: An Aerial Vision of Latin America, Haas now trains his lenses on the regions that transect the Arctic Circle. His latest project yields stunning images that show not a "blinding storm of white" as one might think—but rather, a dramatic and surprising diversity of brilliant colors and unexpected subjects. Photographing over a three-year period, Haas captured imagery that reflects three key elements of the region: the arctic landforms, the iconic wildlife, and the footprint of man. This book strives for and succeeds in producing a visual record that will reshape our ideas of what the Arctic has to offer and why we should protect it.
