Bird’s Eye

Earth from Above

The Earth is Art, The Photographer is only a Witness

This is a Yann Arthus-Bertrand’s thought, founder of the Altitude Agency — 1991 —, which was the world’s first press agency and images bank specialising in aerial photography. He also founded the international environmental organisation GoodPlanet, and set up the programme Action Carbone to offset his own greenhouse gas emissions generated by his helicopter transports. Since then this program has evolved to help people and companies to reduce and offset their climate impact by funding projects on renewable energies, energy efficiency and reforestation: there’s no art without the earth.

Yann is one of those who set out to give us a bird’s eye view of the places we live in. A tribute to the beauty of our world, a way to soar and learn to look at things from a different point of view…
