Summary of Project:

“Volcano is a stunning collection of photographs by Peter Elliston that capture the lives of the people who live in the shadows of the planet’s volcanoes as well as the breathtaking landscapes of both extinct and active volcanoes in Chile, Hawaii, Indonesia, India, Italy, Japan, PNG, Tanzania and Vanuatu. The book also includes remarkable images from an ascent of the active volcano Ol Doinyo Lengai in Tanzania.

Peter Elliston has climbed many volcanoes to add to his portfolio of photographs, sometimes at great personal risk. The photographs are not just about the beauty and majesty of volcanoes but also refer to the presence of modern visitors and ancient worshipers like the Incas in South America.” –  T&G Publishing
