This Immersive Installation Creates Night View Of Earth

From ground level, Australia’s drought looks like a featureless, brown dust bowl, but from the air it transforms into artistry of color and texture as the land cracks under a blazing sun. Circular dry plow tracks resemble the concentric circles in Aboriginal dot paintings that tell of an ancient mythology; starving cattle lining up for feed look like an abstract painting; and their black shadows stretching across the land create a surrealistic image. The worst drought in living memory is sweeping parts of eastern Australia, leaving farmers struggling to cope and many of them asking questions about the future. Continue reading »

Above It All: The Aerial Tour Of California With Photographer Woody Woodworth

1

From high altitude, even the most familiar coastlines take on an entirely new dimension. Combine that bird’s-eye-view with a pulsing swell, and you can see how points and bays manipulate the ocean’s energy, bending waves to perfection. It’s that enlightening perspective that first drew Woody Woodworth toward aerial photography. He’s been shooting California’s coastline from above for years, but this season was especially fruitful, when an aerial perspective offered him the fullest view of El Niño’s unrelenting power and jaw-dropping panoramas on February 24th and 25th.
