Timezone shows extreme and inhospitable landscapes from across the globe with the hope the images will inspire people to care a little more about the world. The project was conceptualised by Thymann together with Tom Phillips/ Exposure NY and commissioned by Casio. Approaching the project with a taste for adventure and trepidation the images show the natural diversity of our small planet.

Each location was chosen for its unusual and unique habitat. In the Mexican jungle cenotes, or sinkholes, expose an underwater cave with a sulphur cloud, while the glaciers in New Zealand depict the unfortunate damage climate change is having on the natural environment. Virunga National Park in the Democratic Republic of Congo plays host to the world’s largest lava lake in the crater of Nyiragongo volcano.
