Amazing photographs from on high

Take a break from the everyday — and see the world from 10,000 feet — with Stephan Zirwes’s hypnotic series of aerial photographs, “Zones and Fields.”

You’ll see stunning shots of industrial areas, ski races, beaches, construction sites, and airfields — all of them taken from vertigo-inducing angles. Zirwes’s soccer fields look like foosball tables; his tropical islands resemble jellyfish; his world is full of striking patterns and beautiful geometries. We suggest that you view the series in full screen, that you turn the volume up — and enjoy your flight.
