Maldives: The Very Best of Michael Friedel


With his incomparable photographs of the Maldive Islands, Michael Friedel, one of Germany’s leading photojournalists, has made the breathtaking beauty of these jewels of the Indian Ocean famous throughout the world. His aerial views of the Maldives have given a new perspective of their home to the islanders themselves. On the 10th anniversary of the Maldive independence, his pictures were used in a series of postage stamps. For over twenty years Michael Friedel has been taking photographs of these tropical atolls on land, underwater, and from the air.

The Maldive mystery


One of the world’s foremost explorers investigates the origins of Maldive history and discovers that the seemingly remote and insignificant islands on the Indian Ocean once formed a crucial crossroads for early pre-European civilizations.
