This collection of photography will completely change your perspective of how Earth looks from space

We are slowly but surely becoming obsessed with satellite photography of the Earth from space.

A little while back we turned shots of Australian landscapes taken from the ISS into Tame Impala albums covers (because it seemed glaringly obviosuly that we had to). Now we’ve stumbled across another collection of birds-eye photos taken from space that capture the awe-inspiring beauty of both the natural and constructed world.

Central Park, NYC

This satellitle photography collection by Benjamin Grant will completely change your perspective of how Earth looks from space.

The collection is called Overview and is a series of images sourced from Google images by Benjamin Grant. You’ll see monolithic cities like NYC and Barcelona, an erupting volcano in Japan, sprawling refugee camps in the desert and the city meeting the sea in Brazil in a format that is unlike anything your likely to have seen before. Have a look below.
