Through his work he sees as a chance to call attention to the beauty of wilderness. His aim is to create extensive wildlife corridors in which animals can move undisturbed. - GEO magazine
In the anniversary special edition, the magazine published the best photographs from 40 years of GEO. Florian was selected as one of only 5 wildlife photographers for this publication. We are proud that he is represented with two double pages.
