New Aerial Views Project „AERIAL VIEWS FISH FARMS“

Photographed out of a helicopter in Greece, June 2017.
I have been captivated seeing from above the surreal looking arrangements of the different shaped nets and cages.The strange, ovoid enclosures appeared like abstract geometric designs.

Intensive mass animal farming on the sea might be one way to help feeding the growing world population. On the other hand there are issues in fish farming which are quite controversial like feeds, diseases and parasites, use of strong antibiotic drugs, …

Flying over Manila and photographing out of a helicopter for my project AERIAL VIEWS MANILA OVERPOPULATION in February 2017, I saw many motives at the Harbour and the area around Manila where the fishers work.

New Project: Aerial Views MANILA, PHILIPPINES - OVERPOPULATION



Having about 23 millions inhabitants Manila, Capitol of the Philippines, is one of the biggest metropolitan regions on the planet.
About the half of its population lives in extremely densely populated Slums and Squatter Camps.

Seen from above it get’s visible how close those cottages and scanty housings are compressed against each other with their varicolored rooftops.

Manila shows, like the other Megacities the excrescences of overpopulation.
Nearly 7.5 billion people are living on the planet today. The United Nations expect a consistent growth, which might lead to nine billion in 2050 and eleven billion human beings in 2100.

NEW PROJECT: AERIAL VIEWS AFRICAN MINES

African_Mines_002,  200 x 200 cm
African_Mines, 160 x 200 cm. Framed Diasec-Print

As an aerial photographer I am working on the Aerial Views project since 2010,with the intention to show the impact of humans on the surface of earth.

While capturing out of helicopters and little planes, my wish often had been 
to go higher to have a wider overview over the location.
The possibility to work with satellite imagery enabled me to create imagery 
out of a view which is higher than the altitude limits of a helicopter.

These Images of mines in Botswana, Angola and Niger, where Diamonds, Nickel and Uranium are extracted, are fascinating for me in their enormous richness of detail, especially when you see them printed in big formate, and when you look at them as whole piece with their structures and patterns, reminding on abstract paintings.
