TeNeues Publishers have released a volume of extraordinary nature photographs by Jürgen Wettke. The book, titled The Namib Desert – !Art.! Structures. Colors. encompasses 140 colour images showing the diversity of one of the world’s rarest coastal deserts.
Alternating between aerial views and standard perspectives, Wettke captures the fragile structures of shifting sand dunes and the details of withered trees. “There are few landscapes on earth where shapes and colours change so rapidly whilst giving such an immediate sense of the origins of our world,” is how Wettke describes his fascination for the Namib Desert, which was declared a Unesco World Heritage site in 2013. The images in the photo book were created with the Leica S system.
