In the last few years there has been an explosion of interest in the emerging field of aerial drone photography. Discovering a location from a different vantage point allows seeing a familiar location from a totally different perspective. For over a century we have been taking and seeing photographs from an eye level perspective. Taking that camera just 10 or 20 meters higher up, changes the way we see a familiar place, a natural wonder or a cultural landmark. Jure Korber and Tjasa Borsnak, a young student couple based in Slovenia’s capital Ljubljana, have accomplished just that – they took their aerial photography platform called Hexabee into the sky and captured Slovenia from angles not seen before. The result is a stunning work of art showcasing one of the most beautiful countries in Europe.
