In 'Above the Clouds', Scott Mead contemplated the endless horizons outside of a plane's window. Now he turns his gaze back to earth, where the view is just as extraordinary. Inspired by William Eggleston, Mead's former teacher, this series of paired photographs focuses on composition, texture, light, shadows, and color to show how nature and the built world can mirror and contain each other. Although not always immediately obvious, the qualities these images share help us see the world through a new lens, with results that are in turn meditative, exhilarating, and lyrical. All proceeds from the sale of this book will be donated to the Great Ormond Street Hospital in London.
