Amazing Aerial Beach Photos

In his  ongoing series À la Plage, À la Piscine, Gray Malin shoots amazing aerial beach photos around the world.

Shooting from doorless helicopters, this series has been photographed around the world from the U.S. to Brazil to Australia. From above, a simple beach … becomes a blank canvas that allows me to start seeing the world as art. People and objects become patterns creating repetition, shape and form. These photographs are a visual celebration of color, light, shape—and summer bliss.

  1. Thank you for sharing these, it was my first time considering the beauty of us gathered this way. Used to seeing overheads of microcosmic communities right, like bacteria in a microscope, but not *us* as the bacteria! How colorful we are 🙂 Thanks again!
