Beautiful Aerial Photos Show Textural Farmland
Photo James Collier

If you've got a head for heights you'll love these bird's eye aerial photos of farmland from NYC based photographer James Collier, as he explores the fabric–like textures of farmland from high above.

Collier's friends may call him Road Biscuit, but judging from these works he is equally happy when in the air, highlighting his "insatiable appetite for texture and exploration."

Why crops?

“At that altitude you can still identify the crops, but it starts to look like a texture that has been woven together,” he told CivilEats. I’m an explorer of texture – in what we eat, in relationships, in the overlooked beauty of everyday life. I use photography to document those explorations, focusing on the intersections between people and food."

Where are the aerial photos of?

The photos were infact taken by a drone several feet above the farmland in several counties across the USA including California, as well as Louisiana, Pennsylvania, and North Carolina.

For now, some of Collier's collection can be seen below, with many more on his Instagram account. One day he may even collect them in a book alongside short interviews with farmers to "add a human element to the images."

It's not the first time we've come across art in agriculture. We've also enjoyed the geometric symmetry of Australian farmer Brian Fischer  and 3D printed pictures into rice fields by Chinese farmers.
