About the book: released by White Lion Publishing, for this new book I spent a long time writing the stories that merge art and science, exploration and photography, and selecting this most diverse collection of nightscape photography, taken by myself and our highly accomplished TWAN team in 20 countries. They are authentic true photos that reveal the beauty of natural nights and the global problem of light pollution. They reveal unique celestial events and the world heritages in an unseen night condition.

I created The World at Night (TWAN) program in 2007 by bringing together the world’s best nightscape photographers at the time. In 2009 we published our first book in German, Dutch, and Japanese. In this new book we aim to share the peace and night sky conservation messages of TWAN with more global readers.
