The Earth From The Air 10th Anniversary Edition



 French photographer Yann Arthus-Bertrand and his devoted team have spent
five years putting together this voluminous gallery, selecting 195
images from 100,000 photographs taken from helicopters in the skies over
75 countries. It is a staggering achievement and precisely shows how
vaguely we know our world. Statistics play a secondary, but vital, role;
the text that accompanies the shots (a paragraph each, with a short
essay adorning every chapter), highlights the degree to which we have
abused our Eden, providing a sobering adjunct to what can at times be
mistaken for a planetary holiday brochure. Of primary concern, however,
are the pictures. Almost every plate is double page, reproduced in
sumptuous vibrant colour, with helpful fold-out notes for each shot. The
standard is a visual treat but, damn it, books should be luxurious
sometimes. Huge African cotton bales become cauliflowers, logs floating
down the Amazon are nothing more than matchsticks, the extraordinary
contours of Turkey's Cappadocia are more like lunarscapes and South
African sea-lions gathered to mate eerily echo an earlier crowd of
curious humans in Côte D'Ivoire. In contrast, a solitary human figure
frequently gives perspective to a shot, though occasionally
superfluously, for the obliquity of perception can add resonant depth,
reducing mighty river courses to glistening snail trails. Much on show
is conventional, exceptional landscape photography, but Arthus-Bertrand
also trains his lens on our fingerprints smudging the idyll, such as the
depressingly overcrowded shanty towns, favelas of Rio de Janeiro or the
sprawling communal rubbish heap of Mexico City. However, the hovering
eye, like a benevolent celestial deity, cannot help but impose a fragile
beauty even on these blights, reclaiming the scarring chaos from its
despoilers and harnessing the sense of mortal finitism necessary for a
solution of ecological sustained development to be convincingly reached.
Arthus-Bertrand's desire to take his art 'beyond the anecdotal', to
give his subject the space in which to impose its own beauty, allows a
gleefully conspiratorial voyeurism, at once empowering and humbling,
that at its best captures something quasi-religious in its intense calm.
As Louis Armstrong once growled, what a wonderful world
