What It Means to Be Human, by Yann Arthus-Bertrand

Photographer Yann Arthus-Bertrand, well known for his Earth From Above project, has a new movie coming out titled HUMAN. Bertrand spent three years collecting stories from more than 2,000 people in 60 countries. The film recounts many of them, interspersed with stunning portraits and the sort of aerial imagery he is famous for, depicting the human condition and our interactions with the Earth. Arthus-Bertrand has been kind enough to share some of the portraits and aerial photography from HUMAN with us here. For more information about the project and film, you can visit its Facebook page as well.
