Magic of Minerals and Rocks
Features 135 splendid color photographs, ranges from vast rock-landscapes recorded in Europe, America, Australia, and Iceland right down to finely detailed images of a few square millimeters.
Close-ups of crystals, gems, and fossils are alternated with micro-images of the minute textures and patterns that emerge from thin, translucent sections of rocks and minerals.
Literally, as well as figuratively Dirk Wiersma, the photographer, ´zooms in` on the subject matter, leading the reader deeper into various spaces of surprising new forms and perspectives, at times abstract, at other times (pseudo)realistic.
Brief accompanying texts are written in a style that is accessible and appealing to a general audience, while also providing the necessary factual information.
