Egypt's Western Desert:
Carlo Bergmann's Discoveries

Seit 1982 verbringt Carlo Bergmann die Hälfte des Jahres in der Libyschen Wüste. Alleine wandernd, seine Kamele im Schlepptau, folgt er längst verlassenen, alten Karawanenwegen. Auf diesen Wanderungen machte er sensationelle Entdeckungen.

Since 1982 Carlo Bergmann has been spending his (winter) time in the Libyan Desert. Mostly walking alone, his camels on his coat-tails, he followed long forgotten caravan roads. 'Reading' the barren landscape while covering more than 75,000 desert-kilometres on foot rewarded him with exeptional discoveries.
