Germany-based photographer Bernhard Lang’s obsession with aerial photography began after realizing that there actually wasn’t that much of it out there—at least, not much that took the vertical perspective he liked. He was drawn to the occasional top-down photos he came across in magazines, and also thought about photography every time he boarded a plane to fly somewhere. “Looking down out of the window, I was fascinated by seeing the world—the graphic structures—from above,” he says. Eventually, Lang found himself strapped outside of an ultralight plane, hanging thousands of feet above the ground. “The first time it was a bit scary,” he says. “But at the moment I was so concentrated on looking through the camera I wasn’t scared anymore.” Like the filmmakers, Lang hopes that showing the world from a different scale might change how people see the everyday world.

This project is to explore how cotton wears over time. Here are my #fitbajeans, a pair of organic cotton raw denim jeans. I’ll wear these to watch Pollok FC every Saturday and post a photo with details of the game. The jeans should be in some state come May. Much like the emotions of a fitba fan.
