Luc Busquin is a fine art photographer and a professional pilot. He has pursued his interest in photography and his fascination for the sky since childhood, uniting these passions now to create a unique vision of the world above us and its relationship to the land below. Luc was born in Belgium in 1973, where he lived until 2002. He currently lives in Phoenix, Arizona with his wife and two children. His photographic work consists mostly of skyscapes, landscapes, and urbanscapes. Luc is self taught in photography, beginning at age eight; as a teenager he developed black and white prints in his parent’s basement. He now uses pigment inkjet printer and digital cameras.
“I’ve always had a passion for the sky. Kites, gliders, airplanes, rockets, clouds, and stars have captivated me ever since I can remember. Today, as a professional pilot, I am fortunate to experience the sky from within, to see the world below from that vantage point. Here is a place of different scale, colors and shapes whose great beauty I find irresistible. With aerial photography, my goal is to filter out the presence of the aircraft to create a view of the sky free of the machines needed to take us there. Whether on land or in the air, my images depict the relationship between the world above us and the land below.”
