Guy Laliberté's documentation of his experience in space features his photographs of Earth as seen from the International Space Station. Captivated by the beauty of the surface of the Earth, Laliberté’s evocative photos show the colors and textures visible only 220 miles away. A stable subject and a moving photographer-the ISS is moving at 17,500 miles per hour (about 5 miles per second), doing 6 tours of the earth every 24 hours–made for truly original conditions. Using the Nikon D3S and Nikon D3X digital-SLR cameras, deserts resemble contemporary abstract paintings, cities rise up like mini-mountain ranges, and faces and figures are revealed in nature. Laliberté dedicated his personal spaceflight to raising awareness about water issues facing humankind, making his the first, in his own words, "poetic social mission" in space. Proceeds from book sales go to Laliberté’s One Drop Foundation, a non-profit organization created to fight poverty worldwide by ensuring that everyone across the planet has access to water, now and in the future.
Guy LalibertÃ© was born in QuÃ©bec City. An accordionist, stilt-walker, and fire-eater, he founded Cirque du Soleil, QuÃ©bec's first internationally renowned circus, with the support of a small group of colleagues. A bold visionary, LalibertÃ© recognized and cultivated the talents of the street performers from the FÃªte foraine de Baie-Saint-Paul. He was the first to orchestrate the marriage of cultures and artistic and acrobatic disciplines that is the hallmark of Cirque du Soleil. Since 1984, he has guided the creative team through the creation of every show. Today, Cirque du Soleil is a sprawling international operation, as much in terms of its makeup as in the scope of its activities and influence. LalibertÃ© now heads an organization with activities on five continents. isbn: 97827594053439.5 x 12.8 in - 24.1 x 32.5 cm304 Pages | 149 ImagesHardcover
