Description

A stunning and unique collection of satellite images of Earth that offer an unexpected look at humanity, derived from the wildly popular Daily Overview Instagram project.

Inspired by the “Overview Effect”—a sensation that astronauts experience when given the opportunity to look down and view the Earth as a whole—the breathtaking, high definition satellite photographs in OVERVIEW offer a new way to look at the landscape that we have shaped. More than 200 images of industry, agriculture, architecture, and nature highlight incredible patterns while also revealing a deeper story about human impact. This extraordinary photographic journey around our planet captures the sense of wonder gained from a new, aerial vantage point and creates a perspective of Earth as it has never been seen before.

From Publishers Weekly

Dec 19, 2016 – The notion that human creations are almost never designed to be seen from above provides the source of the great confusion and great wonder of Grant s assiduous found photography, first displayed on his popular Instagram feed, @dailyoverview, and now showcased in this impeccable book. Each of the book s 200-plus images is made up of numerous high-resolution satellite photographs stitched together to yield fantastic aerial views. Grant developed his approach almost by accident while playing around on a mapping program in 2013: a search for Earth revealed not the entire planet but a small part of it the town of Earth, Texas and the beguiling patterns of the world as seen from above. Human endeavors without a single impulse towards the picturesque often result in dazzling sights: dollhouse pastels from lithium mining and aluminum manufacture, engrossing geometric spirals of thermosolar plants, and De Stijl like container port vistas. This book of photos might lead one to believe that humankind has dedicated itself solely to space-directed installation art and in a way it has. Color photos.
