ABOVE ALL ELSE
In 2002, I was bored on a flight to Helsinki. I had my camera, and I decided to take some photos of the skyline below me, but couldn’t get a clear shot of sky without getting a small section of the plane’s wing in shot. When I looked at the images, I was really taken with the beauty of this engineered machine sitting side by side with nature. I decided from then on to take photos whenever I was flying. The amount of images increased massively due to my travelling, and ABOVE ALL ELSE was born.
Nine years on, I am happy to say that my first exhibition of these images will be at SPACE Gallery in Tokyo this April. The exhibition will run from April 8th until May 15th 2011. A limited edition book featuring a larger selection of the images will be launched at the same time. The exhibition will then move to New York in September.
