These aerial photographs of London make the city look straight out of a sketchbook
We are sure you must have seen Oxford Circus, Piccadilly Circus and Trafalgar at least once in your life, if not in real then at least in pictures. However, viewing these places with the aerial lens of Munich-based photographer Bernhard Lang will make you feel as if you are laying eyes on these globally famous landmarks for the very first time.
His photographical series, Aerial Views: London was captured as he was hovering on a helicopter right above the United Kingdom. The resulting photographs made the city’s geometrical patterns look pretty dynamic while the surrounding architecture of the city, its people and its different modes of transportation, including the double-decker seemed like a part of a very detailed maquette of the city.
While commenting on his series, the photographer says that aerial photography lets him explore iconic places with an unusual perspective and by doing so, he discovers “atmosphere and charisma” of the city in the most unexplored and unique way possible that cannot be seen from the ground.
