Earth from Above
Since its original publication in 1999, Yann Arthus-Bertrand’s Earth From Above has been a touchstone for the environmental movement throughout the world, selling more than 3 million copies in all languages. The result of a five-year journey across five continents and 60 countries, this spectacular portrait of our planet is also an iconic reminder of its fragility.
In this anniversary edition, Arthus-Bertrand and one dozen experts on current environmental issues look back upon the past decade’s progress. With more than 100 striking new images and nine new essays, including frank discussions of climate change and the growing energy crisis throughout the world, Arthus-Bertrand poignantly juxtaposes Earth’s raw beauty with the evidence of humanity’s negative impact upon our home.
