Yann Arthus-Bertrand - Earth from the Air

frenchtree.jpgThis weekend I came across some of the most amazing aerial photography I have ever seen. It is all from a visionary photographer named Yann Arthus-Bertrand who has compiled his aerial photographs into a book and a collection called Earth from the Air. Yann spent 10 years taking photographs over more than 75 countries and consuming more than 3,000 hours in a helicopter.

His overall collection has more than 100,000 photographs. Many of which can be seen his book Earth from the Air or at his current exhibit in Birmingham City, England. Additionally, you can explore his photos on his website: The photo to the right is from his collection that can be found on his website. It is titled "Agricultural Landscape Near Cognac - Charente, France"

Yann's work can be found on a few other sites of interest. The first is the website for Altitude Agency, founded by Yann in 1990. His agency specializes in aerial photography from around the world.

Lastly you can visit to view not only aerial photographs but also photos of horse, cattle and, my favorite, French people.
