Earth From Above Photography – Yann Arthus-Bertrand

November 10, 2008

Yann Arthus-Bertrand is a photographer from France.  These photographs come from his ‘Earth From Above’ series.  Bertrand is both an artist and an environmentalist.  His aim is to inspire people to think globally about sustainable living.  These images are powerful both in scale and in imagery, showing both the light side and the dark side of our surroundings here on Earth.   (This series will be shown in NYC at the World Financial Center Plaza and along the Battery Park City Esplanade from May 1, 2009 to June 28, 2009. In 2010 it will travel to CA.)
