from a distance

May 16, 2022

Before the high tech drones that are used today, photographers strapped their cameras to balloons, rockets and even pigeons to achieve their aerial shots. Bernhard Lang takes his photographs from the open doors of helicopters and other small air crafts. From Baltic lagoons and fish farms in Greece, Lang’s aerial perspective is an exercise in pattern, colour and structure, and also provides an eye-popping view of the human impact on nature and the environment. His tulips fields could be area rugs and it’s hard to imagine that all those planes in Boneyard are real. His images are beautiful and arresting.
