Amazing Africa documents 30 years of pictures

A new book documenting 30 years photography in Africa by the French photographer Pascal Maitre has been released showing amazing views of the continent.

Maitre whose work was published in magazines like GEO, the National Geographic and Paris Match used images from more than 25 different countries in which he has worked to put together the book.

Presenting the project he said that the aim was to show both the beauty and the tragedy of the continent and also to be a tribute to those who tackled the difficulties of living day-to-day in the region.

He said it was also a tribute to the amazing desire to live and desire to succeed that many people in the region had.

The book was presented this week by the publishers who described it as unique in its photographic vision of Africa, unique in the emotion it captured and unique in its attempt to cover both tradition, the countryside, the environment, conflict and day-to-day life from Africa over the past 30 years.

The book which covers 350 pages and was unveiled at an exhibition at the Natural History Museum in Vienna is an attempt to show all the different facets to the curious of life in Africa.

Speaking at the release he said: "My work allowed me to connect with people who were in touch with both heaven and earth. To connect with the people that look for water in the sand desert or spirits in the wild. I worked with noble prize winners and farmers, nomads and businessmen. This exhibition is for everyone of these – a homage to Africans.
