It features a selection of images that were submitted by members of the website, offering readers the opportunity to see the world from a drone’s eye view.
The 288 pages feature aerial photographs of a range of landmarks – from the Christ the Redeemer statue in Rio de Janeiro to Mexico’s Tamul Waterfalls.
Alongside these images are descriptions of how each shot was taken and advice on how to use drones, as well as profiles on notable aerial photographers.
The book’s introduction also details the major changes taking place in the world of photography due to the rise in popularity of drones.
“I was looking at finding imagery which would not point to ‘seen from the sky’ but more at drones as ‘companions’ in our daily life, through innovative angles,” said Ecer.
“Eagles chasing drones, nude photography shot by a drone, never seen shadows and patterns, breathtaking closeness to monuments, reporting on climate, and also a selection of ‘dronies’ – the drone version of a selfie.”
Founded in 2013 by French entrepreneur Eric Dupin, Dronestagram is a drone photography website. The site now has almost 10,000 members, thanks to the drone phenomenon of recent years.
Dezeen’s in-house video studio recently used a drone to film the ill-fated brutalist housing estate Robin Hood Gardens ahead of its demolition as well as Diébédo Francis Kéré’s Serpentine Pavilion 2017.
Dronescapes: The New Aerial Photography from Dronestagram is available to purchase from Thames and Hudson for £24.95.
