george steinmetz aerial photographer

this weekend lawrence and i read a great story (new yorker) about aerial photographer george steinmetz. his photos are breathtaking views from around the world that he takles from hundreds of feet up in the air. in order to capture his unique images he uses a gerry rigged motorized glider that weighs 100 pounds, that in order to get off the ground, he must run like crazy while wearing it on his back until the sail inflates and rises up over him. i kept thinking..indiana jones with a camera.
