About the Book
From Khartoum to Cairo
by Ralph A. Ledergerber
229 pages with 424 full colour images and maps of Sudan and Egypt.
A journey through Northern Sudan and Egypt, following the meandering life-giving River Nile. A discovery of the ancient forgotten kingdoms of the Black Pharaohs in the land of Kush and then crossing the border into Egypt, where collossal monuments are still dominating the landscape, where tombs and treasures of long gone royal dynasties are testament of a highly developed culture with many questions still unanswered.
Award-winning photographer Ralph A. Ledergerber has a unique passion for multiple genres, such as architecture, products, portraits, projects, events, nature and landscapes. His style captures clean lines and vivid colours, which evoke a sense of intense drama, while simultaneously inviting viewers to be drawn into silence and stillness. He shows great skill and is well grounded in all aspects of photography including computer applications, complemented by a strong commitment and attention to detail. Ralph A. Ledergerber was born in 1961 in Switzerland and migrated to Adelaide Australia in 1991 where he now lives and works. Some of his work was exhibited at Circulo Bellas Artes, Calle Alcala 42, Sala Antonio Palacios, Madrid (Spain), at the Morpho Gallery in Chicago IL (USA) in June 2010 and at the SALA Festival (South Australian Living Artists) in August 2010 themed 'Colours of Morocco'.
