Books

I’ve published three large-sized coffee-table books with my landscape images.

Wild Places

This book is about my top 10 wild places in the world. All these places have in common, that they offer remote areas with abundant and unique nature. This can either be endemic plants not found elsewhere on this planet, great wildlife diversity, remarkable geological formations, or spectacular underwater life. The images in this book were shot on 33 trips over a period of 13 years. Altogether I spent more than 80 weeks abroad in these countries. My whole profit (20€ for every purchased book) will be donated to the WWF to help to protect the wild places of our planet for future generations. It is available at Blurb.

Here is a review of this book by the famous National Geographic and BBC photographer Ulla Lohmann:

Dear Boris, your Book is truly a masterpiece of art. It is very inspirational to see those amazing places, or better said: to feel those magical locations through your images and your emotions.  Sometimes, it is a mind blowing feature which is rarely seen like this, for example the bioluminescence in Tasmania. But other times, it’s ‘just’ tree trunks which become art through your lens.  I enjoy every image of the book, and also the layout which takes me on a journey and makes me explore the world with you. Also below the water, which adds another wonderful layer- and the images are stunning!!! The stingray is one of my favorites. But it’s so hard to pick single images, because they are all great!!! The book is a wonderful high quality print, and the colors come to life and give each photograph a great depth.  So very grateful and thankful that I could be a bit of an inspiration… thank you! I am very proud to let you know that your book found its place right next to my favorite book from Jimmy Nelson “Before they pass away”. I see your piece of art also like a testimonial to how beautiful the world is today and how much we have to work all together to keep it this way. Thank you for this! And thank you also for donating 20€ of each book to WWF! I wish that your book and your wonderful vision of the world will make more people happy like me and motivate them to change our world for the better. Danke. 

Iceland

I’ve visited Iceland six times from 2008 to 2016 to capture the great diversity and beauty of this island with my images. This book contains 165 large high-quality images of all the wild places of Iceland including the most spectacular waterfalls, glaciers, canyons, black beaches, ice caves and lava fields in the remote highlands as well as the underwater world of the Silfra fissure and the lively cultural scene and architecture of Reykjavik. It is available at Blurb.

Temperate Rainforests

Temperate rainforests are magic places. They are at the same time peaceful and quiet as well as lively and energetic. Plants, that haven’t changed much since the age of the dinosaurs, with their countless shades of green combined with water everywhere make these places so unique. I’ve visited in a long-term project from 2010 to 2015 all significant areas of temperate rainforests in the world and documented the diversity and uniqueness of these places. This book contains 60 large high-quality images of temperate rainforests in New Zealand, Patagonia, Tasmania, and the Pacific NW and is also available at Blurb.

All the above books are rather expensive, but I’ve deliberately chosen to print them only in the largest available format and on the best available paper. This combined with the small print run of a POD book sadly leads to the rather high price. But I can assure you, the quality of the books is really very good. If you click on the above links to Blurb you get a free preview of all pages.

In addition, seen.by has published a book about 50 photographers featuring some of my images. The title of the book is Was Fotografen bewegt – 50 Fotografen, ihre Bilder, ihre Geschichte. It is available at dpunkt.verlag.
