Aurora Tang

In 1858, Félix Nadar sailed above the newly transformed city of Paris in a hot air balloon. Camera in tow, he photographed the city from above and aerial photography was born. Returning to this early and simple form of aerial photography, Aurora Tang (assisted by Andrea Zittel and others attending the event) guided a weather balloon, equipped with a camera, across the expanses of A-Z West, creating a series of photographs that depict the land from above.
