Floating Islands is the new landscape photography book signed by Manfredi Gioacchini. A collection that immortalizes the wild sceneries ofAntarctica, one of the most inaccessible places on the planet, to reflect on the concept of calm and for a pure return to nature. Looking for an expedition he could participate in, the photographer then found the project Antarctica21, sustainably organized aboard the Magellan Explorer. The name of this boat represented for Gioacchini a sign that led him to accept the journey, after reading the biography of the explorer, written by Stefan Zweig, who gives the ship its name. So he set out in search of silence, contemplation and above all contact with wild nature.
The photos portray the majesty, the shades of pristine white, a place far from man and his passage. With absolute simplicity and plays of light, ice and its inlets are the protagonists of this landscape photography project.
“After suffering a great loss I felt fragile and for some strange reason I found myself looking for the most fragile place on earth.” So Gioacchini introduced his work.
