Africa is a source of amazing bio-diversity and home to some of the planet"s most spectacular landscapes. The sights of this awe-inspiring continent are captured with consummate skill and sensitivity by master lensman Michael Poliza. With extensive experience photographing the animals and terrain of Africa, Poliza"s viewpoint is shaped by his concern for the fragile eco-systems he chronicles. These images embody the soul of Africa"s flora and fauna with a true artist"s eye for color and composition. This book will be enjoyed for years to come. Poliza started as a child actor on German TV, then founded several highly successful IT ventures in the US and Germany. His "STARSHIP MILLENNIUM VOYAGE," around the world on a 75 ft expedition yacht, was avidly followed by millions via internet.
