Has anybody seen the Earth depicted so harmoniously, so poetically?

At first glance, Klaus D Francke’s aerial photographs are so perfect as to appear painted, regardless of whether they depict the unique beauty of planet Earth or the traces left on it by man, which can range from carefully delicate markings to signs of downright brutality.

Many a spectator is overwhelmed by the sight of these images. The photographer shows us a primeval, almost uninhabited planet. In addition to the chapters on “The Earth” and “The Man”, he has added a section on “The Dream”. These photographs belong to Francke’s most beautiful pictures, capturing the rush of flight and the marvels of creation - and how best to treat it. Francke’s images ‘from heaven’ are characterised by a very individual, clearly recognisable style. The photographs are full of atmosphere; they are unusually dense and formally consistent.

Spiegel correspondent Alexander Smoltczyk takes us into Francke’s world and accompanies our journey with a selection of literary quotations.
