Afraid of heights? High flying kite photography gives new perspective

Gerco de Ruijter is a photographer with a new way of looking at the Earth. De Ruijter photographs landscapes using a camera attached to a kite. The bird’s-eye perspective reveals patterns and abstractions that humans don’t usually see.

Because the camera is looking down instead of out, there’s no horizon and your eye focuses on repetitions and patterns. Frosted trees become part of a continuum of white snow. Tire tracks in the dirt transect a photo, the perfect circular geometry of a cul-de-sac is revealed; we see the world a simpler way.
