Description

During the 2,597 orbits he made on the International Space Station, astronaut Chis Hadfield took 45,000 photographs of the Earth. In this edited collection of images, Hadfield creates a single, virtual orbit of our planet, capturing close-up detail of six continents.

From the scorched-red ripples of the Australian outback to the pixelated farmland of Californias San Joaquin Valley, his work reveals visual patterns and abstractions created by climate, geological processes, farming, urbanization and, disturbingly, deforestation.
