When we step back and take a look at the bigger picture, it’s easier to see any situation more clearly. It’s similar to aerial photography: when you go up there and see the bigger picture from above, you’ll see so much that’s impossible to see from the ground.
With his work, German photographer Tom Hegen is the perfect example of this. He focuses on aerial photography that documents the traces we leave on the earth’s surface. In his project The Solar Panel Series, he photographed massive solar panel installations from the air. Not only his project focuses on the human’s impact on the earth, but the photos are exquisite and definitely not something you see every day.
