AIR: Gotham  Vincent Laforet

“Aerials are surprisingly intimate, they make the world feel smaller.”Vincent Laforet

AIR is a project born of my need to share an important lesson I’ve discovered over the past decade making aerial photographs: the world is much smaller than we think. Borders are irrelevant and distances shortened. Clearly, we are more intimately connected to one another than we may realize. AIR is a once a lifetime experience for our team and I’d like to pay that passion and excitement forward with as many of you as possible. I chose the title AIR because it’s something we all share and are all equally responsible for. By definition AIR doesn’t belong to anyone. It belongs to us all regardless of background, social status and origin, as does this project.

Incredible Aerial Photos Make London Look Like A Perfect Miniature City

Here’s New York City as you’ve never seen it before.

Vincent Laforet's “Air” (or “Gotham 7.5K”) photo shoot has resulted in some of the most incredible, larger-than-life images of the Big Apple in years, becoming an overnight sensation.

Laforet — a filmmaker and photographer — packed his multiple decades of “photo mission” experience (and some serious photo gear) into a helicopter and soared to 7,500 feet—just above jetliners landing at JFK, LGA, and Newark airports. Secured in a body harness, he actually hung out of the helicopter at altitude to capture these images.
