Earth From Above

Aerial photography and environmentalism seem to go hand in hand. We had William Garnett in the 50's then David Maisel starting in the 80's. Most recently Yann Arthus-Bertrand's Earth From Above series. See 39 of the 150 images here on the Boston Globe's excellent Big Picture photo blog. The full exhibit is hitting 120 international cities and New York will host the images starting in May of 2009. Via: Chris Glass.

I got to see this series while in Prague, CZ. If the exhibit is in your town be sure to check it out in person. The large format images are amazing and profoundly depict the impact that humans have had on the planet, good and bad.
