EARTH FROM THE AIR is the most compelling, inspiring exhibition you are ever likely to see!

The exhibition of giant images currently in the City Centre of Birmingham (Centenary Square, by the Wheel), is a result of a remarkable 14-year project.

Yann Arthus-Bertrand's mission was to create a photographic record of the natural world at the start of a new millennium. The collection of 160 images takes viewers off the ground and into the air to witness a bird's-eye view of the extraordinary patterns and colours created in landscapes all over the world. Some are the result of human activity - farming, industry or habitation. Others are entirely sculpted by nature itself. None of these images could be seen or even imagined if you were standing on the ground.

Together they tell a unique story that provokes many questions. What are we doing to our planet? What kind of world will future generations inherit? How can we preserve the heritage of natural abundance?
