Art Love: Antoine Rose

Antoine Rose is a self taught photographer that shoots the series called Up in the Air.  He has been working on this series since 2002 and has photographed all over the world from the beaches of Rio De Janeiro to Miami.  He shoots these beach scenes from helicopters with out doors and being suctioned on to the sides of buildings just to get the perfect angle and view.  quite the dare devil eh?  I love the burst of color and even though there is a lot going on- they remind me of a large scale abstract painting the way your eye move from color to color.

I have a soft spot for the name Antoine --he's one of the characters in my book, and he's a goodie :) He's not a photographer, though haha. These photos are awesome. xo

Mary Jo said...

Wow, these are just great! I love that they are solid blocks of color versus the usual smattering of rainbow primary colors that you usually see on the beach and I love his daredevil pursuit of the shot!

Hope your weekend was a good one!

wow! so crazy!! I was wondering how they got all those shots! I mean, does he rent the helicopter just for the photos? Oh my, my hands start sweating just thinking about him hanging out trying to snap the perfect pic! haha!

When I saw the first image at first glance I thought it WAS an abstract piece. What a great series!

Jennifer Prod said...

it's artwork like this that makes me ooh and aww and wonder wonder wonder where such brilliant inspiration comes from? i could hang any of these in my house and be happy with both the appearance and the idea behind the work.

Very clever and brave. I do like the point of view as they are truly unique. Color on the beach is always amazing.

How cool.

Eva said...

Very nice pictures!

Lauren said...

Oh, I've seen this stuff before. I love it. And Christine from The Plumed Nest introduced me to another beachy photographer that I love, and I can never remember her name. Bad on me.

These are so dreamy, and detailed too. I love that juxtaposition.
