Architects among you: Is there anything more pleasing than seeing things in plan view? That godlike perspective that reduces those pesky humans to mere ovals and gives you omniscience over the grand scheme of things?
Perhaps it's no coincidence that Gdynia, Poland-based photographer Kacper Kowalski started out as an architect. But after five years of study and four years in the trenches, Kowalski ditched architecture and switched over, full-time, to flying planes and taking photographs.
That's right, planes, not drones. We've got no idea how Kowalski manages to work both the stick and the shutter button, but the award-winning photographer has figured out a way, and routinely cruises over his native Poland to capture the landscape in all its one-point-perspective glory.
