Britain From the Air ExhibitionPosted: 2011-01-13
Visitors to the city centre of Bath have a unique opportunity to experience Britain from the air - without leaving the ground. In a free outdoor exhibition of over 100 superb aerial photographs, viewers can see some of the diverse and marvellous landscapes that make the British Isles such a wonderful place to explore.
The Britain from the Air street gallery is a joint project of The Royal Geographical Society and WeCommunic8. The aim of Britain from the Air is to encourage visitors to learn more about and enjoy Britain's most inspiring and thought provoking environments. The photographs cover a wide range of environments, from abandoned villages to our eroding coastline, modern transport networks and urban areas. Britain from the Air gives viewers a totally new perspective (literally) on our natural and manmade environment.
Images are captioned by the RGS, with additional photos that tell the story behind each image. The exhibition was launched by writer and presenter Michael Palin, President of the RGS, and is free to view and accessi 24 hours a day. Photos are by some of Britain's leading landscape photographers, including Jason Hawkes, whose series of books depicting areas of Britain from the air have been regular bestsellers over the past few years.
After the exhibition closes in Bath at the end of February it is planned to tour other major UK cities - stay tuned for tour dates.
