Photographer Klaus Leidorf lives with his head in the clouds, or at least his camera is in the clouds. The aerial photography of Klaus Leidorf uncovers the beauty of man and nature’s creativity from a vantage point we seldom see, from far above. A field of scrap tires which is appalling to see from ground level becomes a playful looking field of black toys from high above. Beaches become works of art, instead of the bustling play area of beach goers. Logging storage areas look like a child’s play area, ready for kids to create log cabins and buildings galore. Farmer’s fields become a magical tapestry of colors, shapes, and designs that are the equal to any beautiful patchwork quilt.
As Klaus Leidorf shows the world by floating his cameras high above the world, we miss the magic because our eyes are focused on the small picture in front of our eyes. To see the magic of the world we must launch our senses to the heavens and look down upon our planet.
