360-Degree Aerial Shots of a Soaring Metropolis

New York–based Japanese artist Sachigusa Yasuda reworks photos of cityscapes to produce incredibly busy 360 views of a city from above. The panoramic series aptly titled Aerial features a number of digital renditions utilizing up to 300 photographs each. The result is a dizzying look down at a long drop past skyscrapers mingled with the sense of freedom felt from soaring high above a hectic urban environment.

More than an average aerial view of a landscape, the images present meticulously composed architecture and perspective to give a sense of motion. There is also a kaleidoscopic feel to the photos in the way all of the towers uniformly jut out from the center, extending to the outer reaches of the frame. There is a lot of activity felt through each overhead shot due to the digital artist's careful manipulation.
