Magical. Vincent LaForet’s stunning photo series of cities all over the world at 10,000 feet are exactly just that: magical. It lets you see cities as you’ve never seen them before. Colorful and bright and in the clouds. In extreme detail but also in its entirety. Jaw-popping, eye-dropping, the world we’ve created looks great from up there. The whole photo series is available in a huge book now called Air.

Vincent LaForet says:

Air is a project born of my need to share an important lesson I’ve discovered over the past decade making aerial photographs: the world is much smaller than we think,” says Laforet. “Borders are irrelevant and distances shortened. Clearly, we are more intimately connected to one another than we may realize.
