Antoine Gaussin is a French photographer known for his ‘Uncharted’ aviation series.
Set in airpots across Belgium, ’Uncharted’ gives a truly rare bird’s eye view from restricted airspace. Brightly coloured lines designed for taxiing stretch across concrete landscape to reveal a unique form of geometric art. Such a functional subject matter turns into visual poetry as the images resemble architectural blueprints that come to life through Antoine’s lens.
Antoine is granted special access from the airport authority allowing him to take low altitude shots from a helicopter. He focuses each shot on a small area at a time, which preserves visual detail and minimises distortion. These images are stitched together in his studio to create what he calls ‘hypertography.’
He has collectors from China, Germany, Belgium, the UK and the US.
