Overview

For most of us, aerial photography offers a perspective of the world that is normally only accessible as an enticing glimpse from an airplane window. In this stunning new book by Jason Hawkes, the planet is presented in its many intriguing guises: as industrial heartland, as pulsating city, as transport network, as a living, breathing natural world of fields, beaches, and swamplands. Hawkes' images make us see the world in new and wholly unexpected ways, from the chaotic patterns of apartment blocks and water parks, to the simple beauty of poppy fields and cloudscapes.

Not simply a visual feast of images, Hawkes provides lively, informative anecdote about his start in aerial photography, how he built and maintains a successful business, and the realities of the day-to-day life of a professional aerial photographer. Also included is a comprehensive overview of the historic, artistic, and social aspects of this specialized area of photography. Photographers of all levels and interests will find this an indispensable guide, while for armchair travellers it will be an illuminating bird's-eye view on our world.
