To create this photo essay, photographer Herbert Böttcher spent several
weeks aboard a container ship traveling from Europe to Asia as well as the
US and Latin America. Böttcher used a wide-angle lens that registers details
well into the edge of the image. These impressive panoramic photographs
capture the interplay between the ocean, the wind and the majestic momentum
of the giant cargo liners. To minimize any detraction from these unusual
photographs, a plain red cardboard cover and a red endpaper were chosen.
There are very few words in this volume, which relies exclusively on the
impact of its double-page color photographs.
