FASZINATION KLASSISCHE YACHTEN / Krauss
This coffee table book is a visual declaration of love for classic yachts - reminders of the golden era of boat building and icons of the sea.
This homage shows a cross section of the work of Nico Krauss. This photographer from Hamburg has long counted classic yachts among his favourite subjects and puts them in exceptional pictures surrounded by water and in the right light, creating masterful scenes.
These classic yachts embody a maritime cultural heritage, which is necessary to maintain and fortunately appears to be successfully done. This international boat scene undergoes, in retrospect, a continual boom: the boats are restored, refurbished, maintained, and protected as never before.
The result are numerous nautical antiques in just about any size and from various classes, and with luck not on the land in museums, but rather staying on in their element so that they can be admired by all.
The view of the observer is sharpened, the sense of focus on the exceptional: That is the strength of this practical picture book, which uses unexpectedly detailed pictures and is rounded out with scenes of boat building.
144 pages, 99 colour photos, format 24,5 x 30,5cm, hardcover with dust jacket.
