Earth from the Air is a free, open-air exhibition in the gardens of the Natural History Museum, South Kensington, London. It is a spectacular presentation of large-scale photographs of astonishing natural landscapes. Created by world-famous photographer Yann Arthus-Bertrand, also refer to the previous discussion of his work. Every stunning aerial photograph tells a story about our changing planet. Seen together, they are an outstanding visual testimony to the world we live in today. A world with a growing population, shrinking biodiversity, polluted lands and oceans, a changing climate and a shortage of drinking water. A world, nevertheless, of beauty and of wonder. Also in a pioneering project Yann Arthus-Bertrand's unique aerial view of the world can now be seen by blind and partially sighted visitors.

Nifty. The Ivory Coast photo looked like giant cauliflower at first. Interesting images.

I received his 365 Days book of photographs (many of which, from the looks of it, are in this exhibit). It's fantastic, couldn't recommend it enough. Wish I lived in London, I'd go see this and then the BodyWorlds exhibit.

Only if there are those of us to describe it as so.

Thanx for the link!

Funny you should say that, as I did both of these in one day about a year ago. Never have two exhibitions just completely expanded my perception of the natural world, it was quite remarkable. Sadly the BodyWorlds exhibit has moved to another part of the world now so a repeat visit is out of the question, but I'll definitely take another peak at this when I'm in London in a couple of weeks time.

I love his work too, but how is this not a double post? These are the exact same Earth from the Air photos we discussed in the previous thread.
