Portfolio 8 Travel Namibia Taking a different view Award- winning photographer George Steinmetz has spent 20 years flying high over Africa strapped in a flimsy motorised paraglider, taking pictures that are difficult to obtain on the ground. He says: " There is a magic to Africa — its sounds and smells, the wonderfully positive spirit of its people and, of course, the unparalleled beauty and expanse of its landscape". His new book, African Air, contains many images of Namibia that capture that beauty; views that have rarely, if ever, been photographed before.
