Still very impressed by the Mountain Film Festival in Telluride, CO. Congratulaion to all the award winners and wonderful film makers. I contributed with a "extreme planet" talk in the Palm theater on Saturday, 23rd,  and a "China's Superkarst" exhibition in big banners in the central parks, and with a Booze talk!

Carsten Peter's book "Vulkane" (volcanoes, expeditions to the most dangerous craters in the world) wins the Mountain Image Book Award! The cover shows one of Carsten Peter‘s early pictures, an active lava tube on Etna volcano. The book is published by National Geographic Germany and I am really proud that despite it is in German it made the „Mountain Image Book Award“ @ the #Banff #Mountainfilmfestival in #Canada. Thank you so much! 
Here is David Roberts‘ laudatio: In this stunning volume, Carsten Peter performs the rare feat of showing us the natural world as we’ve never seen it before. The courage and skill it took for the photographer to get so close to potentially fatal explosions of lava, magma, and scalding geysers are evident, yet there’s very little ego involved in Peter’s presentation. The human figures posed in silhouette or in safety suits against dwarfing cataclysms have the anonymity of scientists and explorers bent on discovery, not glory. In the end, Vulkane delivers a revelation, as it shows us that the bucolic surface of the planet we inhabit disguises the unfathomable violence that seethes just beneath. Volcanos announce a subterranean world that we will never be able to explore, yet Carsten Peter has edged as close to its beautiful nightmare as we are ever likely to get. 
Interested in crazy adventures, fascinating nature and pure overwhelming power? The book is published originally in German and just recently in French - and doing well. But sorry, there is no English version yet! If you are interested, please let me know. If you are a publisher, even better!@carstenpeter#banffmtnfest #neverstopexploring @banffcentre @thephotosociety National Geographic

My new exhibition just opened today in Banff, Canada:

EMPIRE OF ROCK: CHINA CAVES

Carsten Peter (GER)
The Banff Centre, Various Outdoor Venues
November 1 – January 2015

Southern China is the home of Earth’s most incredible system of karsts – unique landscapes characterized by labyrinths of sinkholes and sunken chambers, rivers that disappear into soluble limestone, and stone towers punching through a lush landscape of forests and mountains. This is the world’s greatest concentration of caves. Acclaimed German photographer Carsten Peter joined a National Geographic and North Face Expedition of scientists, cavers and rock climbers including Emily Harrington, Matt Segal, and Cedar Wright to explore these caves and their eroded landscapes, some of the last undocumented places in the world. His photographs document the discoveries and adventures in and around China’s ‘supercaves’ in a striking and surprising visual tour.
