Above the Clouds

Tonight was the second book launch that I’ve attended this week about a view of the world seen from above. Earlier in the week I attended, and even spoke at, the launch of a book of photographs all of which have been taken out of the window of an aeroplane by Scott Mead, who was trained as a photographer at Harvard, taking classes with William Eggleston, then spent twenty years as a merchant banker with Goldman Sachs, and then took up photography again, using the many air miles he must have accumulated to good effect by documenting the hypnotic and transcendent quality of viewing the rays of the sun and the nature of the sky above the clouds.
