THEBOOKPEOPLE

'It's impossible to look down on Earth from space & not be mesmerised by the fragile beauty of our planet. During my mission I became determined to share this unique perspective of the one place we alll calll 'home'. This book captures a journey of discovery, not just the discovery of planet Earth - a stunning oasis of life in the vastness of space - but also the discovery of a newfound passion for photography, which has had a major impact on me. I hope readers enjoy leafing through these pages as much as I enjoyed taking these pictures.'
