All the pictures in this book are aerial photographs aimed at presenting a graphic, structural and abstract perspective of Israel, making use of the special light which illuminates the country at different times of day and in different seasons.
The unique angle from which the photographs have been taken lends a different appearance to objects that we have thus far known only in a routine way.
Most of the photographs were taken from a Robinson helicopter and the remainder from light aircraft where the door was removed for the convenience of the photographers.
The helicopter afforded greater maneuverability at low speeds and allowed the photographers to get closer to the scenes photographed.
In order to take photographs from the desired angle and with the correct illumination and timing, three preconditions had to be met: painstaking planning, optimum weather conditions, and good teamwork.
