This new photographic book is devoted to Patagonia and the Tierra del Fuego. Unlike my previous books – Deserts, China 1985, Nature and Man, Andean Highlands – which were for the most part a search for aesthetic themes found in images, lines, colours, textiles, people and so on, this time the author has chosen to follow a chronological progression. In effect, this is a photographic account of two journeys into the most remote extremes of South America in order to give some idea of the multi-faceted beauty of these places.
