Long Bach Nguyen

the work of pilot & photographer Long Nguyen made me so jealous i almost punched my computer. kidding! kind of. after spending an age looking at his incredible photographs i had such a feeling of gratitude for the fact that he’s shared them, giving us a veritable bird’s eye view into his world.

As a professional pilot based in Seattle, Long spends most of his time crisscrossing the western United States … Flying provides him the opportunity to capture unusual views of the landscape, spectacular weather formations and other fresh perspectives few photographers ever experience. A self taught photographer, Long’s philosophy is to keep the image true to its original and to find the beauty in the subject. He likes to keep images clean, crisp and simple so they can tell the story in a single look.

    Ahh the only twin peaks shot I can imagine must be the image of the waterfall..Is that the Great Northern nearby? :D

    Holy wow! I love how aerial photography often reminds me of ‘cloud watching’ in that I can always find shapes of different things in the landscapes. Photo #3 reminds me of ballerina legs and the last one is definitely a tree! Haha.

    holy moly! they look like surrealist paintings – actually, you know what they remind me of? you know that scene in ‘The English Patient’ when the Fiennes character flies over the desert and it looks so incredibly painterly and surreal? well, that’s what these remind me of.

    Could you re-spell his last name on the title of the post? It’s NGUYEN, a very common Vietnamese last name.

    Thank you,

    Thanks for sharing,
    this images are stunning,
    maps and aerial view are a passion of mine, my final project at the University (textile design) was inspired by the same kind of images.
    This is my list of inspiring books:

    AaVv (2002) Heaven and Hearth. Unseen by the Naked Eye. London: Phaidon Press

    Harmon, Katharine (2004) Personal Geographies and Other Maps of the Imagination. New York: Princeton Architectural Press

    Harmon, Katharine (2009) The Map as Art. Contemporary Artists Explore Cartography. New York: Princeton Architectural Press

    Peake, Nigel (2008) Maps. Fields, Paths, Forests, Blocks, Places and Surrounds. Edinburgh: Analogue Books

    I’m sure you’ll like them,

    love your blog,

    Francesca
