From ocean shores to some of the most remote indigenous communities in the world, photographer Cristina Mittermeier explores humanity's relationship with the planet and possibilities for a mindful, sustainable future. Bringing together photographs from some of the most isolated corners of the earth, the book shows wild animals, remote landscapes, and indigenous peoples - challenging the cult of material wealth and proposing alternatives for a meaningful and sustainable connection to our environment, each other, and ourselves. As much an inspiration for sustainable living as a staggering collection of nature photography, Amaze is a must-have book for all those who care about our planet and those we share it with.
