Monferrato earthscapes

Can a rural landscape turn into an abstract art painting? The answer is “yes”, if Mark Cooper is the photographer. Born in the United Kingdom, Cooper has been living in Piedmont for fifteen years, and decided to celebrate his new home by flying 1,000 meters above the countryside in Monferrato, Langhe, and Roero, in search of the traces left on the landscape by farmers and natural elements. His perfectly vertical shots, having no recognizable landmarks, render an original view of this area, and reveal its true essence.
