The World from Above

overview-1overview-2Boca Raton - 90x120 - Version 2 – Version 4overview-4overview-5overview-6overview-7overview-8I recently found about this Instagram account called Daily Overview, which is run by a photographer called Benjamin Grant who uses images which have been taken from the DigitalGlobe earth satellites. I love the viewpoint of the images and how the everyday streets and houses which we live in look so different from above. I also love the concept behind the project being that they wanted to show the “intricacy of the things we’ve constructed, the sheer complexity of the systems we’ve developed, or the devastating impact that we’ve had on our planet”. I am inspired by the fact that through sharing their photographs through Instagram they are spreading the message of the impact we have had on the Earth.
