Stunning Aerial Photos of Botswana Wildlife


From now till February 23, visit the Robin Rice Gallery in New York to see Botswana, stunning photos of African wildlife taken by photographer Zack Seckler less than 500 feet from above the ground. Flying in an ultra-light aircraft and with an expert pilot, the Brooklyn-based photographer was able to capture the unspoiled scenes all around him from a very unique perspective. He was far below the typical elevations of commercial aircraft but far above the people on the ground.

The experience was sublime. As he states, “it was like gliding over an enormous painting and being able to create brushstrokes at will.”

He continues, “Flying 100 feet over herds of wild animals in a plane with no windows was an unforgettable experience. I was privy to views and perspectives that very few get to see. As a photographer, I was humbled.

“I'm always thinking about new ways to view the world. This series quite literally changed my view, showing me that simple changes can create profound results.”
