If the Earth had formed a year ago, Life would have appeared - on February 26th, Dinosaurs would have arrived on December 10th to vanish just 16 days later and Homo Sapiens would have showed up very late on December 31st. A few minutes later, in less than one minute, Man would have drastically altered the fragile balance between land, seas and atmosphere. Humanity is on the march, earth itself is left behind."
~ David Ehrenfeld, 1978



Yann Arthus-Bertrand undertook probably one of the most fascinating collections of Photography that I've ever come across. He first started shooting from the air whilst in a hot air balloon. In more recent years, he has been able to use a helicopter. Whatever his methods have been, he has never ceased to snap creative, inspiring and other-worldly type images.

In 1991, he founded the Altitude Agency in Paris, a Photographic Agency specialising in Aerial Photography. His work takes us on a journey through many different worlds, exploring many different lands, cultures, religions and people. He shows both natures impact and landscape alongside man's impact and footprint on the earth. It's not always beautiful. But it's always amazing. If you haven't already, I urge you to view his work and his message - and perhaps become inspired to undertake your own project. Historically, he has changed the way in which many have viewed the planet.

"Our Earth is Art, the Photographer is only the Witness."



Quite simply titled, 'Earth from the air' Yann Arthus-Bertrand is an inspirational Photographer undertaking quite a unique collection of images. Don't forget to :+fav: the article if you enjoyed it!

It was indeed. And I ran into it by chance. It wasn't planned and I had never heard of him before. A pleasant surprise!
