Marfa Flights: Aerial Views of Big Bend Country (Tarleton by Paul V. Chaplo,T. Lindsay Baker,Lawrence John Francell

By Paul V. Chaplo,T. Lindsay Baker,Lawrence John Francell

Take an unforgettable sky expedition over tremendous Bend with photographer Paul Chaplo as he captures the shapes, textures, and colours of the craggy, weathered landforms humans often see purely from the ground—and a few areas no photographer has long gone ahead of. Flying from Marfa, and striking precariously from the open door of an airplane, Chaplo stocks a hawk's eye view of a fiercely attractive sector, revealing the stark and luxurious landscapes carved by way of the strength of eons of wind and water at the arid, mountainous kingdom alongside the Rio Grande.
