Extreme Wonders

Series combining photography and human drama to reveal twelve remarkable places, uncovering the stories of people fighting to survive, and even triumph, there.

Across our planet, there are a handful of places that truly astonish, like Mount Everest, the Grand Canyon and Victoria Falls. These wonders seem to have little in common other than - literally - taking your breath away. But they share one other thing: they pose extraordinary challenges for their inhabitants.

This landmark series combines stunning photography and compelling human drama as it reveals twelve remarkable places. And it uncovers the stories of people fighting to survive - and even triumph - in earth's natural wonders.
