Come to the bookshop on Sunday afternoon, June 9th at 2pm to meet Chris Gibbs and listen to his story about how he captured the beautiful images in his new book, Art from Above Cape Cod.
Combine a technological marvel, the natural beauty of Cape Cod, and a renegade drone pilot who finds art everywhere he looks, and the result is a photographic collection that’s dramatic and sometimes dizzying. The culmination of three years of drone pilot Chris Gibbs’s aerial journeys across one of the most striking land masses in North America, more than 150 select images capture the essence of what draws travelers from all over the world to Cape Cod: wildlife and weather, boats and beaches, famous landmarks and hidden gems. With their ability to hover at low altitudes and capture previously unseen subjects, drones explode conventional photographic limitations on perspective and composition. The mesmerizing colors and abstracted landscape and tidal patterns offer us an intimate view of this cherished national treasure.
Chris Gibbs is an FAA Certified Remote Pilot, avid fisherman, road warrior, Eagle Scout, aviation geek, and hired gun who operates commercially with his fleet of drones under the name Renegade Airlines.
