Britain from the Air is a stunning collection of over 100 large scale images by Britain’s foremost aerial photographers, developed jointly by Wecommunic8 and the Royal Geographical Society (with IBG).
This exhibition is now in the grounds of The Oxford Castle and is free to visit.
From coastal erosion and abandoned villages to transport networks and the growth of our cities, Britain from the Air, combines the beauty and abstract contours of these landscapes with their stories; inviting the viewer to explore their local, regional and national environment from a completely different perspective.
Supported by text captions devised and written by the Royal Geographical Society (with IBG) and additional pictures which reveal the stories behind the image, Britain from the Air represents an unmissable opportunity to learn about Britain as you’ve never seen it before.
Spectacular saw-toothed coastlines, glittering city silhouettes and the luminous trajectories of waterways are just some of the fascinating forms and shapes that will be revealed as the audience is lifted from street level to sky high while exploring Britain’s wondrous and varied landscapes. There is a website where you can view online images and purchase cards and prints, if you want to see more here is the link
