It's not an obvious friendship. The Kelly Family and Rammstein are two things in the world of music that don't go together. But the people behind them are more alike than you might think. Till Lindemann and Joey Kelly, two men of extremes.
If two such friends want to travel together, one thing is certain: an all-inclusive holiday is out of the question. Both follow the "Yukon myth" and take up the challenge. The Yukon and its surrounding landscape - proud and stubborn at the same time, and thus not entirely dissimilar to the two protagonists of the journey in many ways.
Thomas Stachelhaus' grandiose landscape photographs tell of the primeval adventure on a grim, cold river. With unpublished poems by Till Lindemann and an exclusive interview with the two authors.
Notional Geographic a put a website online to promote the book: Yukon-bildband.de.
