Reviews for Aerial published by Rotovision.
The photograph shows Jason shooting in Yellowstone Park from a Long Ranger
helicopter for McCann Erickson, London.
A very attractive book from Britain’s answer to Yann Arthus-Bertrand… as
well as showcasing many of his own photographs, taken from a helicopter, the
author goes into the history and use of aerial photography, and the
practicalities of shooting from the air.
Part work diary and part technical manual, Aerial offers readers a
behind-the-scenes view of Hawkes’s photographs and career, in addition to an
impressive selection of his favourite images… An extremely attractive
book, and one that anyone with even a remote interest in photography, and an
appreciation of the world around them, is sure to enjoy.
If you admire the much publicised work of Yann Arthus Bertrand, get a hold
of this book. The photography is by Jason Hawkes who specialises in aerial
photography and has 25 books published. It’s incredibly detailed with suburb
colour and fantastic repro. The captions explain the briefs and circumstancs
to each photo and there’s an interesting history of aerial phorography at
the beginning. Well worth a look.
This book is aimed at just about anyone who appreciates good photography,
and has some thoroughly awesome images including my personal favourite of
the Chrysler Building in New York. You won’t find much text here – and
frankly you don’t need it. If ever there was an example of ‘let the pictures
do the talking’, then this is it.
