Water Views: Rivers, Lakes, Oceans

$45per item

About

Journey high above the world's most unforgettable waterscapes via this stunning collection of aerial photographs by David Ondaatje. Water Views is a breathtaking overview (literally) of the most striking bodies of water from around the world. Photographed with state-of-the-art drone technology by author and filmmaker David Ondaatje, these stunning aerial images range from the picturesque beaches of Carmel-by-the-Sea and Gaviota Beach to the wild coasts of Oregon, placid lakes from Tahoe to Como, the emerald waters of the Bahamas and Belize, and the meandering fishing rivers of British Columbia and Montana. Ever-present in this selection, some of which debuted in his recent exhibition at the acclaimed ROSEGALLERY in Los Angeles, is Ondaatje’s deep personal affection for solitude, the unspoiled beauty of nature, coastal water patterns, and fly-fishing in remote areas. Annotated with behind-the-scenes anecdotes, these photographs take you on a spectacular journey from above as you share Ondaatje’s unique first look at some of the most beautiful places in his world, all tied to the compelling and blissful power of water.

We work with the world's most influential authors to produce innovative books on art, photography, design, architecture, fashion, food, travel, and illustrated books for children that represent the very best in design, quality, and taste. Phaidon's beautiful illustrated books are treasured worldwide for their outstanding content and award-winning production. In October 2012, Phaidon came under new ownership and its new senior management team began the task of growing the company for the long term as the world's leading publisher of books in the visual arts, food, and children's markets.

More recently, Phaidon has successfully added interior design to its core publishing categories.
