Earth in Wide Angle by Yann Arthus-Bertrand

Yann Arthus-Bertrand is perhaps the best known aerial photographer on the planet. He has sold more than 3 million copies worldwide of his seminal photo essay Earth From Above, a decade-spanning attempt to photograph all the vistas of the planet from the sky. The book has been translated into 24 languages.

“Earth From Above” is the result of the aerial photographer Yann Arthus-Bertrand’s five-year airborne odyssey across six continents. It’s a spectacular presentation of large scale photographs of astonishing natural landscapes. The exhibition was shown worldwide, from Lyon to Montreal, to 110 cities and was visited by 120 million people.
