Prestel launch new 'Above the Clouds' book

October 2, 2017

World traveller and acclaimed photographer Scott Mead captures the physical, emotional and philosophical wonder of air travel with his awe-inspiring images of the world above the clouds.

Mead views this series of evocative vistas as an "attempt to share an overall internal and external voyage and its insights, thoughts, and feelings" as he gazes over the endless horizon, full of possibilities. Mountains scattered with cloud shadow, the ripples of distant ocean waves, glittering city lights, and the abstract geography of farmland and ice-covered ocean are all beautifully captured in this thought-provoking collection of photography. In an introductory essay Mead discusses his photographic career as an expression of a deeply-lived life of exploration, reflection and discovery.

'Above the Clouds' is now available to order on Amazon.
