Bernhard Edmaier picturesThe IPA is pleased to feature in its picture gallery the pictures from acclaimed photographer Bernhard Edmaier. Bernhard Edmaier, born in 1957 in Munich, has been working as an independent photographer for the last 13 years. Driven by his perennial interest in natural phenomena, Bernhard Edmaier travels extensively to deserted and still untouched corners of the globe to gather material for his books and other photographic projects. 
Over the years, Bernhard Edmaier has won many prestigious awards for his work. His volumes of photography 'Vulkane' (1994), 'Eisige Welten' (1996) and 'Geoart Deutschland' (2003) were consecutively voted The Most Beautiful German Science Book of the Year, and his 'Geoart – Kunstwerk Erde' won him a renowned Kodak Photo Book Prize in 1998.
Bernhard Edmaier has been featured in the National Geographic Magazine for his work on permafrost, and it was logical for the IPA to contact him to feature his pictures in its official pictures gallery.
