Patterns Of Chaos: Artist Makes Stunning Aerial Photos Of Earth

German photographer Stephan Zirwes’ aerial photographs are superb. Peering down on natural and manmade settings from 10,000 feet, he lends us a God’s eye view of our lives on Earth. Nothing has been staged. What you see is life in the early 21st Century from a new angle. The results are mesmerising.

(The pools are in Germany. The industry series is made in the Ruhr area of Germany around Essen and Dortmund. Snow is made in the Austrian Alps.)
