The Bird’s Eye series shows us paradise beaches in Western Australia as well as an awe-inspiring soccer field carved into a rocky island in the Lofoten archipelago in Norway. With the very first glance at these artworks, you hear the crashing waves and sink into the gleaming rays of the sun. It should come as no surprise that the artist’s favorite colors are blood orange and turquoise.
Peter Yan says he is especially fascinated by the new perspectives and possibilities presented by drone photography, even though it can be an exercise in patience waiting for the perfect weather and wind conditions. And even then, he only has a very short window to get the perfect shot. Drones can only stay airborne for about half an hour before they need to be recharged. Knowing this makes the photographic precision and perfection in every one of Yan’s works even more remarkable. They are breathtaking compositions bursting with mesmerizing and idyllic beauty.
