Abstract Aerial Art: incredible drone photography of Australia










Drones don’t have a good press. 
And while we could all do without the near misses over Heathrow, they do have some uses: one of which is helping to create incredible images. 
Mike and JP Andrews, the British brothers behind Abstract Aerial Art would certainly agree. Recently, the pair went to Australia to explore and photograph the outback, taking a drone with them to produce overhead shots. The drone’s images turned out to be the highlight of the adventure.
Mike says, “Not long into our trip, we came to realise we had a vast number of extremely unusual images which we had no idea what to do with,” – when you look at scenery in a generic landscape format, whilst still incredible, it’s what everyone is used to seeing. When we realised how bizarre things look from directly above, we knew we had stumbled upon something special.”
The result is a series of pictures that are both beautiful and otherworldly, at times making it difficult to identify just what you’re looking at. 
But, as Mike says, that’s the aim: “The point is not to work out what it is but to appreciate how weird and wonderful the world can look from above.”
And that’s something we can all see clearly.
