Since the beginning of the Earth from Above project, more than 500,000 photos have been taken in some 100 countries. Here you will find a selection ... sorted by continent.
We recommend you read the accompanying captions, each of them written by an expert on sustainable development. The light they shed on individual photographs reveals their essence and their worth - that of a precisely documented testimony on the state of the earth, a heritage both beautiful and fragile that we must all endeavor to preserve.
- Arthus-Bertrand, via his website
Arthus-Bertrand is currently preparing an exhibit of over 150 4-ft. by 6-ft. prints which will be on display at the World Financial Center Plaza and along the Battery Park City Esplanade in NYC from May to June 2009.
