From the dawn of civilization, the skies have enchanted our imaginations; they beckon to us when dazzling stars twinkle across the crystalline night, and intimidate us when ominous clouds unravel a precipitous downpour. Flight is a prehistoric fascination that has spawned some of our species’ most significant inventions. From balloons and gliders to planes and space shuttles, each generation of humanity is less bound by gravity than the last.
The ancient human desire to take flight and see the world from a towering perspective is now available to the masses. Drones have unveiled an unimaginably expansive visual repertoire for us to experience. Our photographs and videos are no longer limited by our physical capabilities.
