beautiful botswana

“You can make out trees, you can make out animals, you can see things that are recognizable to an extent… But at the same time because of the bird’s-eye view, so to speak, things are slightly abstracted as well”

As quoted by New York-based photographer Zack Seckler in a recent Wired article about the awe-inspiring series he created with a fresh visual perspective. His Botswana series presents the country from between 50 and 500 feet, providing a unique and captivating view of the savannah.
What began as another assignment during a Botswana visit in 2009, Seckler took tourism advice from his client to fill some downtime. It was then where he was first introduced to his first ultra-light flight over the salt flats. Seckler was hooked from there, and returned to do three additional shoots from an ultra-light and a small Cessna.

“For me it was capturing a really unique vision of our world, a beautiful landscape from a unique perspective, and framing moments that create interesting contrast between living things, whether they be animals or flora, and the earth itself.”
