Is Europe a union in name only? How does the land we live on contribute to our culture? How does it divide or unite a collection of cultures? These important questions are at the root of this pictorial examination of Europe’s heterogeneous landscape. This book brings together images from twenty-seven European Union nations and from prominent artists such as Olafur Eliasson (Denmark), Thomas Struth (Germany), Carl De Keyzer (Belgium), Massimo Vitali (Italy), and Celine Clanet (France). The book shows how landscape photography in particular offers critical insights into the characteristics of a place, inviting viewers, through a subjective lens, to form their own feelings toward that place.

Organized into three broad geographic zones, it offers exquisite depictions of Europe’s wonderfully varied geography – shorelines and fjords, mountains and plains, farmland and urban centres – as it seeks to understand the source of the continent’s diversity and unity.
