Joseph Ford’s Aerial Project

View all 10 Photos

Photographer Joseph Ford dangles himself out of helicopters to capture aerial images skimming over tree tops and peering across terrain. In a mix of riddles and puzzles he has whipped up a delightful series of comparables. Do you see it now? Swatches of clothing line up against the photos disguising themselves as part of the picture, or perhaps vice-versa. His fondness of the fashion world made its collision with his photographs following a trip around the globe. And so from a train track in Sicily emerged a zip up Barbour jacket, ripples of sand dunes in Morocco appear to be a Kenzo sweater, developed town in Mauritius pixels out into a pair of Boss boxer shorts. The artist touches on the process, “We made a shortlist together before the shoot, and spent a couple of days shooting the fashion in studio. Very long days – the image of the desert & a sweater took about 12 hours to produce, making tiny adjustments to the lighting and the position of the folds in the material to match it up to the patterns of light and dark in the sand dunes. There was a huge amount of trial and error to get the pictures to match up just right.”

From a journey of learning whole food eating habits, she’s taken on the challenges of baking bread, muffins and cakes from scratch and filling the cellar shelves with scores of her own canned goods each year. Writing is one of those things she does because its part of who she is. That and it’s a nice break from the never ending work that comes with raising a family.
