Benjamin Grant: Overview

Grant was inspired by the wildly popular Daily Overview Instagram, which he has been running since 2013. As the Instagram has swelled to nearly half a million followers, some of the best images have been collected for a miscellany. The project was developed during a  space expedition by astronauts who spend extended periods of time in cosmic space. The book contains more than 200 original images of industry, agriculture, architecture, and nature that demonstrate graphically breathtaking patterns across the Earth’s surface. The pictures show a colorful quilt of tulip fields in Lisse, Netherlands, the charcoal landscape of the Qinhuangdao Coal Terminal in China and the treelike aquatic branches of the Shadegan Lagoon in Musa Bay, Iran. Grant’s hope is to give the viewers a chance to engage with the unique perspectives and to gain a new understanding of our place on the planet.” –
