Georg Gerster aerial photography

Georg Gerster's aerial photography (main site). At a store I saw a book of travel posters he shot for swissair, took it home and got lost in the details for hours. A gallery with larger images. He also released a book, in 2005, of aerial photographs documenting archaelogical sites. His process.

Click on the link following 'Online ordering' from this page. Seems you can't link directly without coming from his site.

I caught the Past From Above exhibit at the British Museum a couple weeks ago. Very cool.

I met a traveller from an antique land
Who said:—Two vast and trunkless legs of stone
Stand in the desert. Near them on the sand,
Half sunk, a shatter'd visage lies, whose frown
And wrinkled lip and sneer of cold command
Tell that its sculptor well those passions read
Which yet survive, stamp'd on these lifeless things,
The hand that mock'd them and the heart that fed.
And on the pedestal these words appear:
"My name is Ozymandias, king of kings:
Look on my works, ye mighty, and despair!"
Nothing beside remains: round the decay
Of that colossal wreck, boundless and bare,
The lone and level sands stretch far away.

Percy Bysshe Shelley, 1818
