Photographer Captures Incredible Aerial Shots of Industrial Waste While Paragliding
Shooting from a paraglider, photographer Kasper Kowalski, takes spectacular aerial landscape shots of the chemical plants and copper mines oozing toxins through the Polish landscape. The project titled "Toxic Beauty", documents the stains of human civilisation left on the land , turning the degradation of industrial damage into ethereal visions. “What interest me the most are intersection points of society and nature,” Kowalski says. “It is where interesting things happen: disorder in harmony, emergence of new forms.”
