View From Above - Gerco de Ruijter

Posted by The Sill on

We're big fans of photographer Gerco De Ruijter, known for his breathtaking aerial shots. De Ruijter attaches his camera to a simple kite made of cloth and sticks. He lets the wind take the tripod where it pleases, and uses a transmitter to snap shots, all while never looking through a lens! He does not see his images until the negatives are developed. Most of the aerial landscape shots uncover a defined cultural landscape, but it is "the irregularities in the patterns," says de Ruijter, that "cause the viewer to once again notice nature."
