Those in Bangkok are highly encouraged to visit Earth From Above, a photo exhibition currently on display at Central World. French photographer Yann Arthus-Bertrand has been taking photos from helicopters, planes and balloons for several decades now, and this exhibition features his work from 1999’s Earth From Above, a bestselling book and accompanying traveling exhibition of a series of aerial photographs that goes back to the 1990s. The full title of the exhibition, ‘Earth From Above: An Aerial Portrait of Our Planet Towards A Sustainable Development’ makes it clear that these aren’t just pretty pictures, but rather a look at man’s impact on the earth, as well as the change that witnessing this can potentially inspire.
The exhibition is at Zen Outdoor Arena until September 9, from 10am to 10pm Monday to Thursday, and from 10am to 11pm Friday to Saturday. Admission is free.
Photos and additional information can be found at the photographer’s website: www.yannarthusbertrand.org.
