Photographer Matthieu Paley

Matthieu Paley goes where others won’t — literally. The National Geographic photographer has spent his life in the most remote corners of the earth, from the mountains of Northern Pakistan, where he lived for four years, to Nauru, the smallest island-nation in the world.

Here, a look at Matthieu’s inspiring work, through which he celebrates our planet’s incredible landscapes and idiosyncrasies.
