Mediterranean Aerials

Fotografie di Daria Troitskaia

Approaching shooting from a helicopter during the pandemic, Daria Troitskaia took distancing to a new level while combining two of her biggest passions – photography and aircraft. Over the course of 2021, she shot a series of works for this project, emphasizing the essential role of the photographer in choosing unique compositions.
The aerial photographs of Mediterranean landscapes combine the beauty of natural scenery alongside man-made alterations and echo abstract paintings rather than touristic views. This look on familiar architectural monuments and breathtaking coastal shores shifts the perspective and underlines the small role humans actually take up
within the environment despite their gigantic impact.
This set is part of an ensemble of projects that Troitskaia currently works on, exploring the interplay between order and technology on the one hand and human life on the other.
