Editorial Reviews

Doug Moe - Wisconsin State Journal
Among the many things that make Craig Wilson's photographs special is how he takes you where you can't go. In fact, he takes you where he can't go. Wilson had what he calls a 'lightbulb' moment many years ago when it dawned on him that his kite could support a camera. Ever since, he has specialized in providing startling images from on high. In Wilson's hands, the familiar is made fresh. This new book is sure to make new converts as well as delight the many longtime fans of his remarkable art.
Tim Burton - Madison Magazine
Craig has a unique perspective. His images give us an unparalleled view of places and situations that are otherwise commonplace and turns them into art.
