6 milliards d'Autres, 6 billion Others, 6 miliardi di Altri

Sunday, June 21, 2009

Yann Arthus-Bertrand is perhaps the best known aerial photographer on our planet. I feel privileged to hold one of the 3 million copies sold worldwide of his seminal photo essay Earth From Above.

Yann seeks to uncover the story behind the landscape, not just create a pretty picture. Indeed, his subjects are not always photogenic -- his prints show poverty and strife as well as green tranquility; and everywhere in his work is the encroaching hand of humanity and its enterprise.

Yann's newest project takes a different view -- focusing more closely on the people who live on our planet. Called 6 milliards d'Autres, the project was a centerpiece of Pangea Day 2008.
