Yann Arthus-Bertrand’s phenomenal Earth From Above exhibit makes its NYC debut on May 1st and runs through June 28, 2009. I first saw his work 10 years ago in Paris and just went through the exhibit for a second time last week in Puerto Rico. Yann Arthus-Bertrand’s photography captures images of the earth — people and places — from a helicopter. His work is absolutely astounding; it is beautiful and educational, giving the viewer a unique and often mind-blowing glimpse of our planet. See a slideshow and interview with him in this Huffington Post Article.
The exhibit includes a photo and a message about the image and sustainable development. There are many images clearly demonstrating the impact of climate change — this exhibit is vitally important and eye-opening. We went through the exhibit with our 6-year-old and he was fully engaged and excited to move from one image to the next. It is a fabulous way to educate children about both the wonder and fragility of our ecosystem.
If you live anywhere near New York it is absolutely worth a trip into the city to see the show. The exhibit will move to San Francisco and Los Angeles on this 120-city tour, although I could not find specific exhibit information for these cities. The Earth From Above webpage has products to buy and more information.
