Up and Down (2/10)
The World From Above When Werner Roelandt looked straight down more than 600 meters from the Preikestolen in Norway, he got the idea for “The World From Above”. The vertical image was fantastic and completely different from how we normally look to the world. He would change the horizontal perspective and look at the world "from above" from now on. All photos from the fineart photography project “The World From Above” were taken straight down from public places open to everyone. All this without using a drone. "You don't take a photograph, you make it." - Ansel Adams This quote completely typifies “The World From Above”. By combining dozens of images, Werner has created a new photographic reality where time and space converge. On one hand, these are photos in which the minutes or hours that have elapsed in a certain place have been reduced to one moment. On the other hand, he has also made photos in which a new dimension is created by continuously repeating the same image to generate a new whole. At first the photos look very realistic, but when you look again, you get a surreal feeling. As an engineer, Werner has always had a great interest in the technical aspect of photography and the editing of the images afterwards. Photoshop gives him the opportunity to create that specific image he has in mind. In addition to his love for photography, he is also passionate about traveling. In “The World From Above” we see several unique locations; from sea level to 3330 meters altitude. “The World From Above” has already received international recognition and has won awards and nominations at photo competitions in New York, Paris, Los Angeles, London, Tokyo, Vienna, Amsterdam and Budapest.
