At close to 1400 feet below sea level, the Dead Sea is the absolute lowest location on our planet earth. Its unique geography makes for amazing land, water and salt formations.
Dubi Tal and Moni Haramati of Albatross publishing have been specializing for years in aerial photography, while combining it with pictures which zoom into still life making it almost live. Together, they capture the views of Israel as you have never seen them before. Dubi Tal won the 'Photographer of the Year' award in Israel in 1992
In this book, the Dead Sea and its surrounding areas take the stage: The many minerals found in the sea color the water in varying shades of blue and green. The photographs show how these colored waters meld into salt deposits and rocky land. You almost feel like you are in a gallery where the artist had an endless supply of canvass and color! The photographers take you to amazing rock and land formations, giving you a feeling of being right there.
Despite the name 'the Dead Sea', people have lived in the area for thousands of years, and it has been a health resort since the times of the Roman Empire. Tal and Haramati take you to some of the amazing archeological excavations in the area, with short explanatory texts giving you the background of each location
The texts in the book appear both in Hebrew and English. At about 6.5 inch square, this book is a perfect gift for the connoisseur of fine art and natural beauty
