In recent years I've become obsessed with publicly available high-resolution satellite imagery. The resolution is reaching the point where it is difficult to differentiate between aerial photography from a plane, and screenshots from google maps. Photographers such as Andreas Gursky and Edward Burtynsky have pushed the boundaries of large format photography. This is my humble attempt to capture compelling images from around the world without living my apartment.
