Acerca de


Bernard Plossu first visited the African desert as a teenager and was enthralled by "the immensity of the horizon of African space". It was then that I took my first picture, and it was then that the idea of becoming a photographer entered my mind. Many photographs later, Plossu returned to the African desert with a single camera and lens to record his personal vision of this arid land and its Hamitic cultures. This book contains 73 vivid images that constitute a photographic essay rich in both technical brilliance and personal involvement.


"These pictures were taken 1975-77 but are timeless invitations to share Plossu's travelsand see them through his eyes."--Creative Camera"A metaphor for desert. . . . Superb volume."--The Fessenden Review"The opposite of that Time/Life cynicism which would attempt to put a whole desert and its people on the top of a coffee table."--European Photography
