Antoine Rose has commenced working on “Up in the air” series in 2002, while he was shooting the kitesurfing world cup in Rio de Janeiro; being perfectionist, he dedicated a couple of years on refining his ideas. His works are oversized photographs (up to 3 meters wide), mounted with a patented diasec process. They offer seaside panoramas captured from a bird’s eye view. In an interview, the artist confessed about his adventurous working process:
Shooting from helicopters, all doors removed, 300 feet above earth at 20 knots and getting tack sharp images that can be printed as large as 120 inches is quite a challenge.
