Antoine de Maximy has travelled the world for 40 years producing documentaries. Having visited more than 110 countries, he is a traveler of the extreme, venturing from  5,000 meters below the surface of the Pacific Ocean in a submarine to 7000 m high atop the snow-capped peaks of Peru by way of the the gigantic ice cathedrals of the Greenland ice sheet.
