Introduction

Earth from the Air is an amazing outdoor photographic exhibition by French photo journalist Yann Arthus-Bertrand. The exhibition at the Botanic Gardens in Edinburgh is a result of a remarkable 14-year project.

Yann Arthus-Bertrand's mission was to create a photographic record of the natural world at the start of a new millennium. The collection of 160 images takes viewers off the ground and into the air to witness a bird's-eye view of the extraordinary patterns and colours created in landscapes all over the world. Some are the result of human activity - farming, industry or habitation. Others are entirely sculpted by nature itself. None of these images could be seen or even imagined if you were standing on the ground.

Together they tell a unique story that provokes many questions. What are we doing to our planet? What kind of world will future generations inherit? How can we preserve the heritage of natural abundance?
