Britain is a stunning country to photograph from the air: in just one morning's flight you can pass from rugged mountain scenery to the flattest broads, and from meandering inland waterways to untouched coastlines. The Gallery at Foyles proudly presents a collection of mesmerising aerial pictures of the UK, taken from photographer Jason Hawkes' and DK's new book Britain From Above Month by Month. With unspoilt natural beauty, the glitter and glamour of London's skyline, and intimate images of tiny rural villages, this show leaves no stone unturned.
Venue: The Gallery at Foyles, Third Floor, Charing Cross Road
Opening Hours: 15th - 17th May 2012 (Tue - Thu 9.30am - 4pm)
