|Rainforest Challenge: 2011 photobook by Paolo Baraldi and Giulia Maroni|
Throughout 2011, Paolo Baraldi and Giulia Maroni (GP Photo), two passionate photo-journalists in extreme sports and travel from Italy, joined the "Rainforest Challenge" international series held in Italy (March), China (August), Sri Lanka (October) and the mother event in Malaysia (December).
As they both recorded these events in totality, thus the idea of... this photographic book came about. "Even though held in different countries, culture, characteristics but there is really no difference in our colour, creed or language as we all share a common bond and passion together, in off-road 4x4, we are one adventure people" the author said.
You will find this common bonding freeze in frame throughout the 52 pages full colour book. "This year as we celebrate our 15th anniversary, this book also serves as a timely record of what we can achieve together in the big family of the RFC. The book will be launched during RFC Italy (European Selections)" RFC-founder Luis J.A.Wee told.
Luis J.A. Wee added: "This is the heading for the section on Sri Lanka. This tropical isle is not only the "emerald in the Indian Ocean", an island paradise of faith & smiles, unspoiled nature/beaches, hilltop resorts, religious sites, rich cultures & long history dating back thousands of years."
"This teardrop-shaped island country about 80 kms from South India, has all of these plus for an offroad-event promoted by RFC International as RFC Sri Lanka’s Taprobana 4x4 Challenge. 2012 edition will be held from 19-26 October.
