The result of five years of travelling, presenting various dramatic photographs of the coasts of Europe. An artistic and ecological masterpiece. Includes 200 images with nursery rhymes collected from children across Europe. Published in conjunction with a waterfront exhibition in Ostend, Belgium, on view from May - August 2012 Moments Before the Flood, is a visual and photographic investigation into how we will handle a possible flood. Within the text Carl De Keyzer wonders how Europe is preparing itself for a possible rise of our sea levels and how insufficient these measures appear to be. The author doesn't want to photograph the disaster, but the 'waiting for the disaster to happen'. In his photographs he captures the obscurity of the unknown and the unsure. The photographs presented in this book are monumental, both in beauty and in resolution. Carl De Keyzer used the latest technique (65 million pixels) to create intriguing images, with a high David Lynch-like atmosphere.
