About the Author

Stefan Christmann is a passionate nature photographer from Germany. Being a physicist by profession, his job brought him to live in Antarctica for an uninterrupted 14 months, from December 2011 to February 2013. While he was conducting geophysical research on the German Antarctic research station Neumayer III, he spent every free minute outside, photographing the vast Antarctic landscapes as well as the busy life of the nearby emperor penguin colony. He returned with countless unique images and priceless memories of a place, which many think is just flat and white. Instead, he found a landscape carved by wind and water, filled with an immense palette of colors and now wants to share these impressions with a large audience.

Stefan strongly believes that this planet is the ultimate gift to all human beings and that we finally have to start treating it like that!
