Guy Laliberté is the world’s first private space explorer to publish a book documenting his experience in space, featuring unforgettable 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 only visible from 220 miles away: 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 will go to Laliberté’s One Drop foundation, a nonprofit organization created to fight poverty worldwide by ensuring that everyone around the planet has access to water, now and in the future.
