"For Belgian photographer David De Vleeschauwer, the best travel destinations are often the hardest to get to." - cnn.com. "Dive into slow travel, a captivating mix of portraits, landscapes, and even vintage icebreaker interiors." Escape to our world's most remote destinations with photographer David De Vleeschauwer and travel journalist Debbie Pappyn. Immerse yourself in 12 journeys that unfold through fascinating firsthand texts and enthralling photographs. Teetering rocks, indigenous people with skull masks, Arctic and the North Pole, the Andes and Port Lockroy in Antarctica, to gaucho chic in the Patagonian wilderness, Remote Experiences is the visual account of the extraordinary journeys of photographer David De Vleeschauwer through the world's most uncharted territories. Focused on 12 unexpected destinations, it wanders to paradise-like, off-the-radar forgotten kingdoms with ancient Buddhist outposts in the foothills of the Himalayas and traces the footsteps of pilgrims and shepherds in Italy. From the plains of Botswana to the outer realms of Antarctica aboard a superyacht icebreaker, this unique guide outlines its own geography of the world. Along the way, we meet individuals, landscapes and even vessels that become the serendipitous heroes of these wondrous adventures. De Vleeschauwer's shared experiences depict a world where the foreign becomes familiar, the isolated accessible. In our digital, overly consumptive age people want a true sense of place, which might be rugged, refined, or rural. Complete with travel accounts and detailed descriptions of trips that range in price from an affordable 250 euros to an ambitious one million euros, we go on an unforgettable voyage to those overlooked or sometimes forgotten spaces "where time stands still", encouraging us to do just that - maybe just from our armchairs. New from Taschen, 25 x 30 cm, 424 pages.
