From the publisher (1981):
"Namaqualand is a region of contrasts: a profusion of wildflowers miraculously born out of gasping drought, the monotony of flat plains dramatically broken by rocky outcrops. Its barrenness hides untold mineral wealth; its plain people live a simple life with the bearing of princes. Whatever their origin, Namaqualand has caught them up and made them her own.
Namaqualand: Thirstland in bloom reveals the nature of the fascination of this arid land. Chris Jansen captures the drama of the landscape, unfolding its beauty with the fresh perceptiveness of an artist born to the gentle climes of Europe. His photographs speak an international language."
