Description: “Above us Only Sky” is an exhibition of a collection of large-scale aerial photographs by the award-winning photographers of “Drone Photo Awards”.
The exhibition captures the world’s beauty as seen from the skies. Mountain valleys carved by glaciers, saw-toothed coastlines edged by glistening waters, abandoned villages and sprawling transport networks – all the aerial images tell their story.
It will be a showcase of aerial photography from around the world and will explore how artists stretch the boundaries of traditional photography to reflect the environmental perceptions of our time.
The photographs border on the edge of abstract, subverting spatial relationships and scale, to create a simultaneously alluring and disorienting experience for the viewer.
Comprising the artists’ best works, the exhibition will examine the use of form, color, perspective, and abstraction to reshape our understanding of landscapes, nature, environment, wildlife and the entire world.
The exhibited works revive historic photographic processes, as well as, use innovative techniques and unconventional equipment to depict the world in surprising ways. The exhibition challenges us to see photography differently, and contemplate our complex relationship with nature and environment.
