landmark architecture and urban landscaping becomes shapes and geometries in buenos aires-based photographer federico winer‘s ‘ultradistancia’ series. winer transports viewers across all corners of the globe, allowing them to vicariously travel on google earth ‘trips’ from airports to highways and famous cities. aerial photography sourced from satellites sees stations, neighborhoods, routes, and houses turn into kaleidoscopic compositions. it is from this vantage point that an observer can truly understand the winding pathways of an airport terminal, the twisting roadways we drive on everyday and the complex layouts of historic cities.

a landscape format allows a horizontal reading of the image, enhanced through the digital interplay of color and luminosity. the series distorts our perception of the earth surface, where common landmarks resembles paintings and topography is visualized through a spectrum of color. winer considers the notions of movement and travel as a sort of paradox — ‘there are many ways of traveling — with the body, with the mind, moving physically or not’ he says. ‘the long google earth trips I embarked on were directed to track shapes and forms, starting from simple curiosity and cultural references, then meticulously hovering over geographies until something attracted my attention.’
