    1. His newer work is more interesting. This includes some less interesting themes such as an empty art gallery and Chinese manufacturing but still has gorgeous imagery, especially the aerial landscapes and quarries.

    2. Absolutely stunning. The photos in this book speak volumes and make me want to research the origins to learn more about these special places. This is an excellent book to own for the artwork and anyone who wants to see more of the world from a very unique perspective, I love it.
