Winter from Above

It is an art to show the everyday and the common from a different perspective. A perspective which will awaken curiosity, engage, surprise and — at least for a moment — transport the viewer up, to contemplate the world from above it all. It is an art to disconnect from the earthly and join the heavenly.

The Winter from Above series is the result of passion, commitment, love of flying and photography. For an experienced pilot and an accomplished photographer, this marriage is a natural way of expressing the beauty of the world as seen from above. It is also the appreciation of the simplicity and the elegance of nature. It offers a unique way to look at common things from a different perspective.

It is the world where familiar objects take new shapes by vividly contrasting against featureless backgrounds, often recognizable only by the shadow they cast. Some structures remain unknown until the viewer dives into the details. The featureless background makes the images appear almost graphic, crossing the boundary between photography and drawing.

All photographs in this series have been taken from a Cessna 172, a personal airplane and flight trainer. In the majority of the cases, I am piloting the plane and photographing at the same time. This configuration allows me full control over the attitude of the plane – so critical to the outcome. Sometimes, a safety pilot is present to monitor the flight. Each flight is a mission that requires careful planning ⎯ the weather, visibility, winds, angle of the sun ⎯ all must come together at the right time and place.

Red Roof

Red Roof

Taken on the border of New Jersey and Pennsylvania, this snowed-in farm stands out by it’s wonderfully red-colored roof. A yellow Piper Cub was flying above it just before the capture and although the ultimate photo-opp has been missed, the remaining result is nevertheless, pleasing.

Joint Flight

Being Above

Seeing the birds in flight from this unique perspective – above – is an unique experience. It holds especially true for a well organized flock of Canadian Geese. This moment, captured over a snowed-in Westchester golf course, remains one of my favorites.
