Summary
For more than forty years, Georg Gerster has traveled the world photographing archaeological sites from the air. In The Past from Above, archaeologist Charlotte Trümpler introduces and explains 250 of his photographs, taken in more than fifty countries in Europe, North and South America, Asia, Australia, and Africa. Gerster's subjects range from the temple complex at Karnak to the Great Wall of China, from the Acropolis in Athens to the temples of Abu Simbel, from Aztec cult palaces in Mexico to monumental designs in the California desert. These color photographs are not only captivatingly precise technical achievements - often produced under hair-raising circumstances - but also aesthetically fascinating, unique views of our world. The result is both a photography book and a visual history of mankind stretching back to the very beginnings of civilization
