Side Effect – Aerial Photography by Kacper Kowalski
“Side Effect” is a photo book by renowned aerial photographer Kacper Kowalski. It documents the complex love/hate relationship that we humans have with nature. A trained and licensed pilot, Kacper’s prefers to paraglide over likely areas to capture some truly breath-taking images of the land down below. In this series, he has managed to get dramatic shots of fallow fields, lakes, landfills, and highways. Of his work, he said: “Sometimes the pictures resemble drawings, sometimes they are like maps with traces of human presence on the Earth. Even forests, meadows and lakes are modified by people. I think it is an atavism — a need to leave a trace, a visible sign, to immortalize oneself.”
