Leonardo da Vinci was once quoted as saying, “For once you have tasted flight you will walk the earth with your eyes turned skywards, for there you have been and there you will long to return.”. In many ways this is what Above the World: Earth Through A Drone’s Eye tries to capture.
Created by TeNeues, this book, Above the World, takes you on a journey through unexplored landscapes.
Also, to be frank, Above the World is more a work of art than an actual book.
For the first time in history, with the rise of drones, people like you and me can be freed from the constraints of gravity. Drones have also given us the alteration of an art form; we can now have unknown talents standing next to artists. This is the essence of this book. See more images below.
It gives us some of the world’s best aerial photography. From professionals and non-professionals alike. Furthermore, the subjects surrounding these photographs are diverse and utterly unique. This book takes you on a bird’s eye view journey of a volcanic eruption, to the Cliffs of Moher in Ireland. It even goes to the depths of taking you over the unreal landscapes of fish farms and even delivers never before seen views of Patagonia. This is in addition to many more fantastical aerial views.
It features over 200 full color pages of some of the world’s most stunning landscapes.
This is a section from the synopsis,
“Above the World is an ode to the beauty of the aerial image as it can be seen and captured by anyone. Let yourself be inspired.”
And that is probably the most noteworthy part of this book; it has the ability to inspire and possibly get you into the world of drones.
