Description

A stunning and unique collection of satellite images of Earth that offer an unexpected look at humanity, derived from the wildly popular Daily Overview Instagram project.

Inspired by the "Overview Effect"--a sensation that astronauts experience when given the opportunity to look down and view the Earth as a whole--the breathtaking, high definition satellite photographs in OVERVIEW offer a new way to look at the landscape that we have shaped. More than 200 images of industry, agriculture, architecture, and nature highlight incredible patterns while also revealing a deeper story about human impact. This extraordinary photographic journey around our planet captures the sense of wonder gained from a new, aerial vantage point and creates a perspective of Earth as it has never been seen before.

About this Author

Benjamin Grant is the author of Overview and also oversees the Instagram project Daily Overview, from which the book takes its inspiration. Since he began the project in December 2013, his daily posts have both delighted and challenged his audience from all corners of the globe. For Overview, Grant has curated and created more than 200 original images by stitching together numerous high-resolution satellite photographs. With each image, he aims to not only inspire a fresh perspective of our planet but also encourage a new understanding of what human impact looks like. Grant graduated from Yale University, where he studied world history, art history, and rowed on the heavyweight crew team. He lives and rides his bike in New York City.
