The Bird’s Eye View Series is an exploration in visual cartography. The perpendicular view of a drone at selected portraitures of nature and the urban fabric provides an abstract non-human perspective at the effects of civilization. A delicate dialogue between still-life features and moving elements enables the observer to dynamically gauge the impact of natural and man-made realms. The series aims to capture the beauty, hope and the confidence in the relationship between the human condition and the natural habitat. Removing the vehicles and the motion of a heavy traffic routeway in “Street” unveils the fragility of the human being in the urban fabric: a pedestrian bridge crosses the roads and clears the way for a person gently walking across.
