"Michael Martin is traveling without a back-up team or external film team. This guarantees maximum authenticity and genuine adventure." In contrast to other notable expeditions undertaken on the BMW R1200GS, Martin is traveling without a safety net and plans to produce work that's not about him, but about the the earth's deserts. These pictures were taken in the volcanic deserts of Iceland, while Siberia, Greenland, Spitsbergen, Sahara, Gobi and Atacama, among others, are also in his itinerary. Martin will be producing photography and reports that compare the impacts of climate change on dry, ice and volcanic deserts. All this will be compiled into a book entitled Planet Desert, which should be finished by autumn 2014.
