OFF THE GROUND
Photographer Antoine Rose contemplates the world from a bird's eye view to give us a miniaturised perspective on humanity. People become gregarious insects buzzing around candy-like umbrellas. Broad panoramas reveal amazing geometric compositions where human beings are just tiny pixels lost in infinity.
Antoine Rose (b. 1974) lives and works in Brussels. He is a self-taught professional photographer who started artistic aerial photography in the early 2000s when he was the official photographer of the Kitesurfing World Cup and travelled around the globe capturing breathtaking shots suspended from a helicopter.
