George fell in love with Africa as a twenty-one-year-old college drop-out, when he hitch-hiked across the continent for two and a half years. It was a life-changing experience, and he decided to take up photography to document the amazing areas he was exploring. On that trip he dreamt of how amazing it would be to fly over Africa’s vast landscapes, and some twenty years later his dream came true when he talked National Geographic into financing a portfolio of aerial photos for the coming Millennium. He started with small planes, and work in remote areas evolved into using a motorized paraglider, a foot-launched contraption that is the lightest and slowest powered aircraft in the world. African Air is George’s first book, from flying over thirteen African countries.
