FILE is pleased to present Aerial Photography, an amazing series of aerial photographs taken by Jason Hawkes. The world that is revealed by this work is both vast and tiny, and the images capture the exhilaration that Jason must have felt shooting them. As he says:
In many ways there is no such thing as an ‘average’ day when you are an aerial photographer. The weather sees to that, and you very much have to react to the conditions that you encounter. If you are working on personal projects such as books, as opposed to commercial shoots, then you will also need to develop a natural eye for pictures that will work from an aerial perspective and be able to think on your feet and work with the light, so that you can plan your shooting schedule hour by hour as the day unfolds. Having said all that, this is how a typical day might conceivably pan out, and it’s the very unpredictability that surrounds aerial photography that is so appealing, and which makes this area of photography so constantly challenging and exciting.More of this incredible work can be seen on his web site.
