About this title

Synopsis:

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.

From the Publisher:

The Prime Minister of Israel has chosen "Skyline: Israel From Above" as an official gift from the State of Israel to world leaders and visiting dignitaries. This book is one of a series featuring breathtaking Israeli skylines from an aerial perspective.
