"Boken Mother Earth, liknar inte någon annan bok;
den är lika rå, lika inbjudande, kreativ och mångfacetterad, som Mother Earth, själv.
Det är förresten ingen bok; snarare ett konstgalleri – med hårda pärmar".
/Anders Geidemark
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Through my photographs of nature and wild animals, I hope that people will see how fantastic our natural world is and that it is well worth conserving. Nature has also been very important to me when I’ve had tough times – it has given me energy. Going outside in the middle of the night and encountering wild animals and experiencing the spectacle of nature has been healing. I have used my camera to portray animals and nature – but all my photographs are in fact probably somewhat like self-portraits; they reflect my emotions.

I sometimes imagine what it was like when the Earth came into being. It must have been a spectacular and frightening scenario when all the volcanic eruptions led to the creation of a protective atmosphere, and when the seas were created by the ice from colliding asteroids and comets.

I have personally had the privilege of witnessing the birth of new land – an unforgettable experience. Standing by a volcano that is spewing lava is indescribable. In the summer of 2021, the volcano Geldingadalir erupted on southern Iceland, which had not occurred in the area for more than 800 years. A mind-blowing thought. I will never forget the smell of sulphur and the muffled rumbling sound. Like a heart, the volcano pumped out its blood in gushing streams. Mother Earth put on an amazing show!
