Best known for his aerial photography, Steinmetz uses a paraglider to gain access to some of the most remote areas on the planet, launching from elevations that range from +14,450 ft to – 1,388ft. Steinmetz is a regular contributor to National Geographic and New Yorker magazines, and has examined human habitation in extreme environments ranging from mining camps to the innermost stretches of the Sahara.
