African Air (Abrams 2008)
Desert Air (Abrams, January 2013)



Best known for his exploration photography, George Steinmetz sets out to discover the few remaining secrets in our world today: remote deserts, obscure cultures, the mysteries of science and technology. His passion is photographing while piloting an experimental motorized paraglider to capture unique images of the world, inaccessible by traditional aircraft and most other modes of transportation. George has explored subjects ranging from the remotest stretches of Arabia's Empty Quarter to the unknown tree people of Irian Jaya and documenting the work of scientists in the Dry Valleys and volcanos of Antarctica. Since 1986, George has completed 31 major photo essays for National Geographic and 25 stories for GEO magazine in Germany. His expeditions to the Sahara and Gobi deserts have been featured in separate National Geographic Explorer programs. He has won numerous awards including two first prizes in science and technology from World Press Photo. George graduated from Stanford University with a degree in Geophysics. His books include African Air (Abrams 2008) and Desert Air (Abrams, January 2013)
