Louis Helbig, Highway 53 Bitumen Slick, Alberta (2009)
The aerial photography of Ottawa’s Louis Helbig provides a reflective pause for the disquieting natural and industrial vistas that are this artist’s principal subject matter. Many of his images possess an abstract quality and bring to mind the similarly striking industrial landscapes of fellow Canadian photographer Edward Burtynsky.
Below are a few of Helbig’s stunning images. More of his impressive photography can be found at his homepage here.
