A collection of aerial photography produced by Yann Arthus-Bertrand

“Earth From Above” is the result of the aerial photographer Yann Arthus-Bertrand’s five-year airborne odyssey across six continents. It’s a spectacular presentation of large scale photographs of astonishing natural landscapes. Every stunning aerial photograph tells a story about our changing planet.

These images, by photographers of the Farm Security Administration/Office of War Information, are some of the only color photographs taken of the effects of the Depression on America’s rural and small town populations. The photographs are the property of the Library of Congress and were included in a 2006 exhibit Bound for Glory: America in Color.

The year 2009 is part of history now, I urge you to take a look back over the year through photographs. Historic elections were held in Iran, India and the United States, some wars wound down while others escalated, China turned 60, and the Berlin Wall was remembered 20 years after it came down. Each photo tells its own tale, weaving together into the larger story of 2009. This is a multi-entry story, 120 photographs over three days. Please Look for part 2 and part 3. (40 photos total)

All this comes to us courtesy of and their ongoing series The Big Picture. Excellence is something to celebrate and these images are some of the best you’ll see. I salute all the photographers who shot them. – Robert
