Thomas Mailaender's Extreme Tourism
WELCOME TO VOLCANOVILLE, your new favourite tropical holiday destination point! Bask in the glow of the molten rock, literally burn off those pesky kilos with the vibrating tectonic-plates, and try the latest craze - lava surfing! All the cool kids are doing it! Volcanoville: the natural disaster where the temperature is always a balmy 85 degrees.

If that's a little too hot for you though, French photographer Thomas Mailaender can help you imagine the lava lapping at your feet. In collaboration with Hawaiian based volcano photographer Steve Young, their 'Extreme Tourism' series defines the ultimate escape. They created Volcano Village, a website that fuses your happy snaps with gargling molten gurglers. For just $25, you too can visit Volcanoville.

Mailaender has some other extreme series you should check out. Ever seen your grandmother holding a metre tall ping pong paddle? Try his 'Items' series. Ever wanted a photo of yourself holding one of those giant novelty cheques? Try his self-portraiture 'Sponsoring' series.  Ever wondered what a stack of strippers would look like on a handmade coffee mug? Try 'Handicraft'.

You know you want to. See the above and more at thomasmailaender.com

I would also like to point out that the Volcano Village website is now being sold for $5,000. For reals. Someone please buy it.

I enjoyed the website, but can't help but think the 'doggy style video' was a little cruel. I did laugh though.

I have to agree, Thomas. Don't go looking for the horse version.
