Aerial Art is a spectacular collection of photographs that record the astounding beauty, scale, and diversity of the vast wilderness spaces of southern Africa.
"This book is visual celebration of Africa from the unique bird's-eye
view from the seat of a light aircraft"

" For the animal shall not be measured by man. In a world older than ours, they move finished and complete, gifted with the extension of the senses we have lost or never attained, living by voices we shall never hear. They are not brethren, they are not underlings: they are other nations, caught with ourselves in the net of life and time, fellow prisoners of the splendour and travail of the earth.”
