Staff Reviews


Yann Arthus-Bertrand, renowned for the incredible book Earth from Above, now takes us even further, capturing gorgeous images of Earth from space, giving us a rare glimpse of the patterns and textures of our home. However, this is much more than a simple photography book, as Arthus-Bertrand uses the images to illuminate issues such as deforestation and other environmental concerns, making this is a poignantly stunning, powerful book.

— Flannery

Description


From space, Earth is a magnificent sight, splashed with vivid colors, patterns, textures, and abstract forms. Views from above can also provide telling information about the health of our planet. To help us understand the more than 150 breathtaking satellite photographs in Earth from Space, Yann Arthus-Bertrand, an aerial photographer and devoted environmental activist, discusses the impact of deforestation, urban sprawl, intensive farming, ocean pollution, and more. Using high-resolution imagery, we can monitor the evolution of vegetation around the Chernobyl nuclear disaster site, snow loss on Mount Kilimanjaro, and the health of migratory bird populations. Earth from Space’s compelling selection of satellite images raises important questions about our future, while also showcasing the planet’s beauty—leaving no doubt that it is something crucial to protect.
