Hunting Steel Birds in the Sky

This photo series, entitled Bird Hunter, does not involve the type of hunting that you might typically imagine. Spanish art director and photographer Dani Garcia Sarabia spends his time pursuing not wildlife, as one would generally expect from a hunter, but rather, powerful winged airplanes in the sky.

Sarabia describes his process for the project: “Waiting since before the sunrise on a cold winter morning, with my camera loaded and ready to fire, you hear the shrill sound of the engines and it appears in the sky, the silhouette of the great steel bird. It's time to aim and shoot…”

Through bushes and trees, and across bodies of water, Sarabia's landscapes are taken from a low perspective and angled upward. His interesting views evoke a sense of solitude and the feelings of laying still on the ground, quietly and patiently waiting for the exciting moment when a single, lone aircraft streaks across the vast, empty sky.
