Our previous entry for Alan Taylor’s Big Picture weblog on the Boston Globe showcased the series “At Work.” His latest installment features the works of UK based aerial photographer, Jason Hawkes, in a series titled “Human Landscapes from Above.” Featured artist, Hawkes, has put out an astounding number of books throughout his career highlighting his talents for this niche in the photography world. He shoots with a Nikon D3 from a twin squirrel helicopter as he perilously leans out from the ajar doors with just a harness holding him in place.
What he captures are breathtaking landscapes of subjects varying from crop fields to car lots to landfills. These results all possess their own patterns and intrigue, and yet they are all tied by a unique style. The quality of the pictures is apparent when viewing on Alan Taylor’s blog. His selections for “Human Landscapes” provide an excellent overview of this artist’s body of work. Proceed to the jump to view our picks from Alan Taylor’s blog and Jason Hawkes professional website.
