Yann Arthus-Bertrand (born March 13, 1946 in Paris) is a French photographer,
journalist, reporter and environmentalist.
He founded the Altitude Agency in 1991, which was the world's first press agency
and images bank specialising in aerial photography (500,000 pictures taken in
more than 100 countries by more than 100 photographers).
In 1994 Arthus-Bertrand started a thorough study on the state of the Earth
sponsored by UNESCO. As part of the study, he made a picture inventory of the
world's most beautiful landscapes, taken from helicopters and hot-air balloons.
The book from this project, Earth from Above (‘la Terre vue du ciel’) sold over 3
million copies and was translated into 24 languages.
In 2000, his "Earth from Above" free exhibition was set up on numerous big
posters on the gates of Jardins du Luxembourg in Paris. It then travelled
worldwide from Lyon to Montreal, to 110 cities and was visited by 120 million
