Egypt: A View from Above
Egypt's landscape, from sand-swept desert ruins to the brilliant water of the Red Sea to the vibrant city of Cairo, is as legendary as its mythical history. Home to hieroglyphs, pharaohs, and the Great Pyramids of Giza, Egypt's rich cultural heritage truly merits its place in the cradle of civilization. In this breathtaking photographic journey down the Nile river, renowned photographer Philip Plisson travels by air with bestselling author and Egyptologist Christian Jacq to create this celebration of a spectacular landscape. Plisson's expert lens captures stunning icons of antiquity with the same grace and beauty as it presents the people of Egypt, subsisting as they have for centuries in communities along the Nile delta. Jacq's illuminating text provides a history of the subjects of Plisson's 250 splendid photos, inviting readers to rediscover Egypt as they have never known it before.

The Sea
Philip Plisson gives free rein to his abiding passion: the sea. he depicts it in all its moods, in all its states. His favourite themes are seascapes, regattas of legendary tall ships, distant reefs, lighthouses battered by storms, and long-distance voyages, where he manages to capture the solitude of a lone sailor confronting the power of the elements. All these subjects still stir the popular imagination, even in an age when science has left few corners of the oceans uncharted. Plisson's special gift lies in exalting the image offered up by nature by finding the most beautiful and appropriate light and attaining something close to painting with photography. This achievement is based not only on talent and an obsessive quest for beauty, but also on countless hours of waiting for just the right light, and endless miles covered by land, sea and air in search of the most beautiful setting, of the best possible photograph. A text by Yann Queffelec, another sea lover, serves as an introduction to the book. This book will captivate any reader with a fascination for those vast expanses of blue and an urge to share the photographer's adventures and enthusiasm; it evokes dreams of the sea, the sea that enthrals us all.
