Gold 2018 Nature / Aerial

Central Park From 10,000 Feet – Seasons

  • Prize
    Gold in Nature/Aerial, 2nd Place winner in Nature
  • Photographer
    Filip Wolak

An iconic New York landmark photographed from the same overhead point at the peak of each season. Times and dates have been carefully selected for maximum effect; position of the sun, casting shadows over the course of the year is always perfectly aligned along the surrounding avenues. Photographer - who was also the pilot of the airplane - had only minutes to capture each moment. This series is meant to pay the homage to Park's unique architecture, and show respect to nature's work in the center of the Concrete Jungle. It's final presentation is a large format, extremely detailed quadriptych.
