See The Symmetry Of Mass Tourism Captured From Above

Aerial photography has an amazing capacity for revealing a geometric beauty in certain spaces. The symmetrical aspects of cities is particularly prevalent, but here in Italy, photographer Bernhard Lang has flown over the beach of Adria, in the north-east of the country, revealing a curious symmetry through the parasols of holiday makers. These columns have a sort of military precision to them, nothing out of place, everyone in line.

It was whilst on holiday in Italy a few years prior that the photographer, today based in Munich, was surprised by the symmetry of these parasols across the beach. He went back a second time, spending hours taking photos of the Italian cost line from the city of Ravenne up to Rimini in Émilie-Romagne. The full project features multi-coloured snaps with a proliferation of variations on a checkered patterns.

The work of Bernhard Lang can be found on his website or via Instagram.
