This work comes from the artist's À la Plage, À la Piscine series. Shot from door-less helicopters, this series takes an aerial look at beach and pool scenes around the world from France to Brazil. From a carefully calibrated distance, "people and objects become patterns creating repetition, shape and form. These photographs are a visual celebration of color, light, shape -- and summer bliss," in Gray Malin's own words.
A Dallas native, Gray Malin hunts the globe for the unusual beauty, capturing unforgettable images with his photographs. He often plays with perspective through height, helicoptering over the beaches of Brazil or sending balloons above the mystical plains of Joshua Tree National Park. The result is not only artistic, but also transporting, with images that provide a dose of travel and imagination. Gray's work has been displayed in the Dallas Museum of Art and has been published around the world in publications such as the London Observer.
