Aerial Inspiration

The film 'Home', among other work by Yann Arthus-Bertrand, is a great example of where aerial perspectives can bring a sense of reflection and global unity to an audience. His images are both illustrative and emotive relating human interactions with a landscape which is often vast and alien looking from above.

There is a strong element of simple truth-telling in his work which gives it some extent of universal appeal. Despite this his later work has become increasingly politically strategical. He is a vocal ecological activist and founded the umbrella organisation which is concerned with climate change issues and the protection of biodiversity.

Home was released for free and can be streamed here.
