Telling a story... from the sky
"Earth from the air shop" in London, exhibits rare photographs of the planet...
Standing on the top of the world...
A rare exhibition "Earth from the air shop" is now being held in London at the History Museum campus. The Natural History Museum, London, plays an important role in promoting the discovery, understanding, responsible use and enjoyment of the natural world. More than 350 scientists work at the Museum, using the collections to help them address contemporary issues. A team of specialists interprets these photographs. Yann Arthus-Bertrand, the photographer has taken these pictures from a helicopter at an altitude of 100 ft. to 10,000 ft. He discovered the beauty of the world seen from the air when working in Kenya studying about lions. At first, he used a hot air balloon. Today he uses a helicopter to capture his unique perspectives of the earth. His aim was to create a record of the world's environments as a benchmark for the future.
