AIR by Vincent Laforet

by Geoff Ryman

As seen on CBS News Sunday Morning and CBS News This Morning: "No city has designed its lighting to look good from orbit. Yet our city lights viewed from above are truly spectacular - a beautiful, unintended consequence of civilization. They radiate into space a message about who we are." (foreword) - Donald R. Pettit / NASA Astronaut. Sublime, quiet, serene, surreal, and other-worldly... these are just a few of the adjectives that only begin to describe Pulitzer Prize-winning photographer Vincent Laforet's mesmerizing high-altitude nighttime aerial photos over some of the most iconic cities around the world including New York, London, Sydney, Miami, Chicago, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Las Vegas, Berlin, and Barcelona. "AIR is a project born of my need to share an important lesson I've discovered over the past decade making aerial photographs: the world is much smaller than we think." says Laforet. "Borders are irrelevant and distances shortened. Clearly, we are more intimately connected to one another than we may realize. I chose the title AIR because it's something we all share and are all equally responsible for. By definition air doesn't belong to anyone. It belongs to us all regardless of background, social status and origin, as does this project. Laforet, a three-time winner at the prestigious 2010 Cannes Lions International Advertising Festival, is a director and Pulitzer Prize-winning photographer who's known for his forward thinking approach to image making and storytelling. In addition to having been commissioned by nearly every major international publication including Vanity Fair, The New York Times Magazine, National Geographic, Sports Illustrated, Time, Newsweek, and Life, Vincent is considered a pioneer for both his innovative tilt/shift and aerial photography and in the field of HD-capable DSLR cameras.
