African Air

African Air is a compilation of pictures from ten years of flying over Africa, mostly with a motorized paraglider. This foot-launched ultra light is the slowest and lightest powered aircraft in the world and allows George to capture intimate aerial views of places that have never been seen from above. African Air covers the continent’s most breathtaking landscapes, from migrating herds of zebras and elephants to infinite miles of desert, including densely packed urban centers and small, remote villages. The book has a 7,000 word personal introduction that begins in 1979 when George got the idea for this book while hitchhiking through 17 African countries. There are also seven shorter essays covering experiences from aerial fieldwork.

Autographed copies purchased from George’s Studio are $45.00 plus $10 domestic shipping.
