They made me so curious I was frequently googling more information about the places on the pictures, or examining them with more details on Google Earth.On the other hand, his results are no worse when he photographs junked aircraft and concrete overpasses. He is especially well known for his book The Earth from the Air, which has sold millions of copies since its first publication in 1999. That work became Earth from Above , which has now been translated into more than two dozen languages.

The result of a five-year airborne odyssey across five continents and sixty countries, The Earth from the Air is the bestselling and most popular book of aerial photography ever published. The team travelled to over 150 countries taking thousands of photographs, documentary in style yet stunning to look at. He is the chair­man of GoodPlanet Foundation, a nonprofit association for the promotion of sustainable development, and the director of the documentary films Home and Human . Stunning photography with very serious commentary about threats to the world's beauty, and how things that look beautiful are also a threat.

Few of us have the opportunity to view the Earth from such a lofty perspective, as though God himself were observing the great beauty, patterns and drama of our daily lives. This iconic book of photographs brings together the images from this movement, experiencing the light and dark of care and parenthood, the beauty of close-up details, love and hardship, and most importantly, the personal poetic truths of these mamas and artists.

With its reinforced hull, its powerful propulsion, and its prominent stern, it moves forward on the ice floe that it cracks and breaks with its weight.

In 2007, Earth from Above was launched in a film format, broadcast on French national television as a 4-episode, 8-hour television series. Some photos exhibit problems (corners softness, chromatic aberration and vignetting) indicating that the lenses used by the photographer have been of only average quality. His seminal series, The Dream Collector, depicts Tress’s interests in dreams, nightmares, fantasies, and the unconscious and established him as one of the foremost proponents of magical realism at a time when few others were doing staged photography. Pink trumpet tree on the Kaw mountain, French Guiana — "Photography is an instant, and in an instant, you capture a time," said Arthus-Bertrand.

In evaluating recent developments this revised edition reveals the earth’s fragility and the impact of humanity, but most of all the beauty of the natural world. Marshall McLuhan used to say that when people moan about the news always being full of depressing stuff, they're overlooking the adverts - they're the good news, he said - housewives, smile!

Each photo is accompanied by a short essay or explanation, ussualy local trivia, the history of the shot or the environmental impact of industrial activity at each specific location.
