The Breathtaking Desert of Namibia Captured by Leah Kennedy

Australian photographer Leah Kennedy used her recent journey to Namibia as an opportunity to explore the deserts of this African country and capture some fantastic aerial photos along the way. Unlike most other photographers, who are turning to drones in order to do aerial photography, Kennedy prefers different approach and has taken all the photos by herself from aircraft and helicopters.

“I have always been interested in abstraction and duality in photography, and aerial photography affords me both of these qualities.” – Kennedy says of her work. “The resulting images are, at least temporarily, removed from their reality they take on different forms and in some cases appear to be of microscopic origins. This ambiguity and departure from reality is what intrigues and inspires my work. The Namibian landscape was particularly diverse and afforded a wide range of images from various regions. All images were taken from Cessna light aircraft or helicopters with doors removed using a medium format camera.”
