About the Book
Where astronaut and birdman meet: The runway's surface of the airport of Hanga Roa on Easter Island, built for emergency-landings of US Space Shuttles, offers inspiring images from a strange, almost magical world.
"Photographer Johannes Groht travelled half-way around the globe to see the Easter Island. Not to photograph the Moai, the well-known stone giants, but to take pictures of random tarmac-spillage on the edge of the island's only runway. Surely an unusual approach to the cultural landscape of Rapa Nui, but easy to comprehend and fascinating to look at!"

"This sequence of pictures is stimulating my fantasy. Great!"
