You’ve probably never seen pictures quite like this. Pulitzer prize-winning photographer Vincent Laforet’s new book of pictures, “AIR” (Press Syndication Group, 2015), shot high above some of the most iconic cities in the world, offers a rare kaleidoscopic view of the world we live in. Laforet shot tens of thousands of pictures from the open door of various helicopters over cities ranging from London to Berlin, searching for the perfect picture that would provide a unique perspective. Laforet explains the title and conception of his book:

“‘AIR” is a project born of my need to share an important lesson I’ve discovered over the past decade making aerial photographs: the world is much smaller than we think….Borders are irrelevant and distances shortened. Clearly, we are more intimately connected to one another than we may realize. I chose the title “AIR” because it’s something we all share and are all equally responsible for. By definition it doesn’t belong to anyone. It belongs to us all regardless of background, social status and origin, as does this project.”
