Aerial photography is not new, but the perspectives of Stephan Zirwes are. Nearly all of his photos are direct overhead shots. The subject choices are everyday scenes, but never seen like this.


Some photographers discover a niche or style of photography that makes you look.

Most of Stephan’s images are pushed into 2 dimensions when we’re used to seeing 3 dimensions, perspective and angles.

Stephan’s work covers such a diverse gamut and many views that are alien simply because we experience life with feet mainly on the plains of the earth.

Even air travelers don’t get this kind of a view unless there are glass bottom passenger aircraft I’m not aware of.
