Yann Arthus Bertrand

Photographer Yann Arthus Bertrand captures the animal world and natural environment. Incredible terrain, amazing wildlife and landscape that doesn’t even look like it’s real make his photography mesmerizing.

He developed from a photographer to a reporter focussing on environmental issues and working with magazines across the World. He then went on to found the first aerial photography agency in the World. This collection of images ‘The Earth from the Air’ was created for his book which launched in the year 2000 and his outdoor exhibitions have been seen by over 200 million people. He is now creating films, again with prevalent environmental themes.

We can’t get enough of his vivid imagery and his images are giving us serious wanderlust. Care to embark on an adventure anyone?
