The Word From Above

    Gold in Fine Art / Other

All photos of “The World From Above” were taken straight down from a public place without a drone. By combining multiple pictures, a new reality is created in which time and space were brought together. At first the pictures seem very realistic, but when you look again you get a surreal feeling. From a distance you see a pattern but when you look closer there are incredible details to discover. Every image is available in high resolution in a large size to make sure that every detail is still visible #theworldfromabove

"You don't take a photograph, you make it." Ansel Adams This quote fits perfectly with my project: "The World From Above" in which I create a new reality where time and space come together. As an engineer I have always been interested in the technical aspect of photography and the editing of the images afterwards. In addition to my love for photography, I am also passionate about traveling. It was great to be able to work on “The World From Above” at unique places in the world: from sea level to 3330 meters.
