They shed light on the many guises the surface of the earth dons and attest to Wenders' contemplative and amazed gaze....The book, presenting panorama shots of landscapes and cities, architecture and nature, is thus both a portrait of the world as encountered by the photographer and a portrait of the photographer as reflected in his vision of the world."

"For many years Wim Wenders has taken an old panorama camera along with him on his travels, using it whenever the sheer wealth of what he saw and the Impressions It left on him burst the confines of the normal scale of things. He refers to his collection as "Pictures from the Surface of the Earth" and In this way emphasizes that they are photographs of a world almost devoid of humans, a natural or manmade world viewed from a distance. What we see are landscapes and city vistas, photos of architecture and nature--taken In the United States, Japan, Australia, Israel, Cuba and Germany. They not only shed light on the many guises the surface of the earth dons, but also attest to Wenders' contemplative and likewise amazed gaze. The book is thus both a portrait of the world as encountered by the photographer and a portrait of the photographer as reflected In his vision of the world."
