Yi Sun is an aerial landscape and travel photographer based in the UK. He has a passion for exploring the world and documenting nature as well as raising awareness of the overlooked environmental issues of our beautiful but fragile planet. His photographs are created by flying in light aircraft or helicopter, shooting straight down at the landscape while the aircraft doors are open.
One long term project is to document the impact of human influence on the natural environment. Like the rest of Spain, the region of Aragon has been suffering severe droughts for decades. Facing an uphill battle, the resilient Spanish farmers have continued their struggle to survive. This series of images are taken over 3,000 ft above ground from a small two-seat CT2K plane. The striking and amazingly strange abstract patterns of farming fields are a reflection of the humankind’s impact on the Earth.
