Thanks to all these 12 great professional photographers we can observe the world from a unique special perspective difficult to imagine from the ground. From high above on their flights, from the top of a crane or from movable platforms raised towards the sky, they provide us with grand geometric landscapes, amazing maps of gorgeous shapes and colours, puzzling patterns of land stretches.
This is one of the powers of photography.
"There are lots of landscape photographers who prefer an elevated perspective or a vision from high above and whom we have interviewed in the past Zoom magazines: Edward Burtynsky, Massimo Vitali, Michael Najjar and Andreas Gursky, to name just a few. Their high-altitude viewpoints are extremely successful among spectators - who invariably are taken aback in amazement – but also among collectors, who are willing to invest plenty of money to enjoy their majestic prints. Consequently we have decided to focus on this peculiar point of view and dedicate this very special issue to great artists capable of blending high altitude photography and art. Although each photographer has his own style in depicting the territory, there are two key features that are common to them all: dedicating their entire photographic works to this elevated vision and printing in giant format to give viewers the feeling of being up there."
