Photographer Aurelie Curie has released her Above collection of snapshots to the public. Curie traveled to the highest points of buildings and bridges, gaining an epic aerial vantage point that modern artists have come to covet, largely to the benefit of art aficionados.
Curie's review of metropolitan cityscapes resonates with her belief in the grandeur of all things urban, "I wander the hidden places and find beauty in infrastructure." Indeed, the spiderman-like perspectives are at once frightening and stunning, offering a belittling look at heavily gentrified spaces that have been fully taken over by traffic, apartments, restaurants and corporate construction. The pictures are nonetheless silencing, prompting viewers to appreciate the rare aesthetic appeal of cramped living spaces throughout the world.
