Around the world with cities Geometries ; can you spot your city ?

Photographer Benjamin Grant has set off on a mission to change the way we see our planet with his stunning photo project

Our project was inspired, and derives its name, from an idea known as the Overview Effect. This term refers to the sensation astronauts have when given the opportunity to look down and view the Earth as a whole. They have the chance to appreciate our home in its entirety, to reflect on its beauty and its fragility all at once. That’s the cognitive shift that we hope to inspire.

From our line of sight on the earth’s surface, it’s impossible to fully appreciate the beauty and intricacy of the things we’ve constructed, the sheer complexity of the systems we’ve developed, or the devastating impact that we’ve had on our planet. We believe that beholding these forces as they shape our Earth is necessary to make progress in understanding who we are as a species, and what is needed to sustain a safe and healthy planet.

As a result, the Overviews (what we call these images) focus on the places and moments where human activity—for better or for worse—has shaped the landscape. Each Overview starts with a thought experiment. We consider the places where man has left his mark on the planet and then conduct the necessary research to identify locations (and the corresponding geo-coordinates) to convey that idea.

The mesmerizing flatness seen from this vantage point, the surprising comfort of systematic organization on a massive scale, or the vibrant colors that we capture will hopefully turn your head. However, once we have that attention, we hope you will go beyond the aesthetics, contemplate just exactly what it is that you’re seeing, and consider what that means for our planet.The results are so amazing, Grant has even put together a book of over 200 high-resolution satellite photographs. It’s titled “Overview: A New Perspective of Earth”, and can be purchased through Amazon.

ITALY

The town of Palmanova, Italy is recognized by its concentric layout known as a star fort. The rationale for this construction was that an attack on any individual wall could be defended from the two adjacent star points by shooting the enemy from behind. The three rings that surround Palmanova were completed in 1593, 1690, and 1813.

Washington DC , USA

The urban plan for Washington, D.C. – the L’Enfant Plan – was developed in 1791 by Major Pierre Charles L’Enfant for George Washington, the first President of the United States. L’Enfant designed a compass-aligned grid for the city’s streets, with intersecting diagonal avenues that were later named after the states of the union. The diagonal avenues also intersect with the north-south and east-west streets at circles and rectangular plazas in order to create more open, green spaces. Lastly, L’Enfant laid out a 400 foot-wide (122 meter) garden-lined “grand avenue” – what is now know as the National Mall – that connects the US Capitol Building, the Washington Monument, and the Lincoln Memorial (the latter two are visible at right in this Overview).

One of the most influential innovations in the park’s design was its “separate circulation” systems for pedestrians, horseback riders, and automobiles. This concealed “crosstown” commercial traffic in sunken roadways (known as “transverses” today), and densely planted shrub belts in order to maintain a rustic ambiance.

Mexico’s Day of the Dead

Day of the Dead  is central and southern Mexico during the chilly days of November 1 & 2. Even though this coincides with the Catholic holiday called All Soul’s & All Saint’s Day, the indigenous people have combined this with their own ancient beliefs of honoring their deceased loved ones.

They believe that the gates of heaven are opened at midnight on October 31, and the spirits of all deceased children (angelitos) are allowed to reunite with their families for 24 hours. On November 2, the spirits of the adults come down to enjoy the festivities that are prepared for them.

cv-o6zuxgaaqjulcv-o6zuweaasneecwckzwsweaab78d

Celebrated throughout Mexico  colorful parties take place in the cemeteries and elaborate ofrenda altars are built in the homes to honor specific family members who have passed on, beautiful altars (ofrendas) are made in each home. They are decorated with candles, buckets of flowers (wild marigolds called cempasuchil & bright red cock’s combs) mounds of fruit, peanuts, plates of turkey mole, stacks of tortillasand big Day-of-the-Dead breads called pan de muerto.

The altar needs to have lots of food, bottles of soda, hot cocoa and water for the weary spirits. Toys and candies are left for the angelitos, and on Nov. 2, cigarettes and shots of mezcal are offered to the adult spirits. Little folk art skeletons and sugar skulls, purchased at open-air markets, provide the final touches.

Photographer stands over a bridge and this happened.

There are a few  of bridges in Hanoi ( Vietnam)  waiting  which  vendors pass by everyday to the market, but nobody has ever seen the beauty of their mundane  daily routine until now. To show the beauty, symmetry, and art  of their wares from above the bridges of Hanoi, Photographer Loes Heerink  gets up early every morning, to snap photos of  street vendors create every day without their knowledge as they  travel with  their bicycles piled high with  many vegetables or fruit as you possibly can.

The former communication officer from the Netherlands  sort to capture the essence of Hanoi; and the vendors are the embodiment of that vibrancy and colors, the city exudes. Her series  knowing the beauty you make every single day!  she  talked to some of these women, often female migrants coming to the city trying to earn a little extra money, and is publishing a book on the project.

” The fruit and vegetable vendors are little pieces of art that look different every day. I will promise you I will put my all in the making of this book.”

Her Kick-starter     campaign to get her book under way has almost reached it’s goal of 3700 dollars and requires a little more donations to make it across to the completion threshold. Go support her.
