The Modern Explorers

Franck Goddio's expeditions are featured in a new Thames & Hudson book on contemporary explorers

What is left to explore on our planet in the twenty-first century? Through vivid, mostly first-hand, accounts we gain unique insight into challenging and epic journeys to some of the remotest parts of the planet in extremes of temperature, frequently alone and on the edge of danger. Dramatic photographs often taken at the very moment of discovery or peril, add to the sense of adventure. From the frozen poles to the hottest deserts, from mountaintops to the depths of oceans and underground caves, all terrains are covered. (Thames & Hudson)
