My hands may be SMALL, but my ideas are BIG


Earth From Above

With my background and interest in photography and the slew of close friends living in New York City, I thought this post was appropriate.

Photographer, Yann Arthus-Bertrand is bringing his work to the U.S. in New York City starting in 2009. The launch article covered in the Boston Globe says his work aims "to inspire people to think globally about sustainable living." Arthus-Bertrand has been "photographing unique views of our planet, seen from the sky, since 1994 - and has produced an exhibit of over 150 4-ft. by 6-ft. prints." These spectacularly breathtaking prints will be on display in New York City at the World Financial Center Plaza and along the Battery Park City Esplanade from May 1, 2009 to June 28, 2009. If you're in the area, I highly urge you to partake in viewing this show. In 2010 it will be moving to California. These vantage points are ones that we as humans usually can't view, and forces your paradigm to shift. I hope you enjoy these shots as much as I did. Enjoy...
