Discover aerial photography with Artistics
"Art is man added to Nature" according to painter and art theorist Francis Bacon. This idea expresses the need to reinterpret Nature through art, but it also underlines the fact that an artist won’t easily find better inspiration than the surrounding nature. However, as pristine nature becomes increasingly rare due to the growing impact on the environment of human activity, many artists depict nature to condemn the disproportionate exploitation it suffers at times. With that, artistic techniques such as aerial photography are better than others in documenting human impact on the environment, but also recording what the Anthropocene has that is paradoxically aesthetic. Indeed, if technology can change the state of nature for commercial and industrial uses, it can also give people the power to take a step back and contemplate the changing world. Nature still remains an artist’s muse, but art now bears witness to the dangers of excessive land exploitation, and brings about a wider awareness.

Our aerial photography artists
In-between nature, landscape and urban photography, Bernhard Lang's artworks allow viewers to look at vistas from a unique vantage point: the sky. Whilst on an airliner, Bernhard Lang’s artistic photographic senses were captivated by the artificial environment only seen from the above. This is how aerial photography became his trademark. His aerial views offer a way to see nature’s grandeur from the sky and to consider the irreversible impact that man has on the environment. While wishing to raise awareness, Bernhard Lang's aerial photography also hints at the paradoxical beauty of nature which, in some cases, has practically nothing natural left. But seeing this beauty, does this mean, as Francis Bacon’s quote suggests, that the impact of man on nature is an art form with its own aesthetics? This is what Bernhard Lang’s artwork questions.
