2. Vincent La Foret

Vincent Laforet is primarily a filmmaker and photographer, with his instagram account showing his work from his project AIR. He describes how AIR is ‘born of my need to share an important lesson I’ve discovered over the past decade making aerial photographs: the world is much smaller than we think. Borders are irrelevant and distances shortened. Clearly, we are more intimately connected to one another than we may realize.’
