Aerial photographer Timo Lieber took to the skies of Miami in September 2018 to capture stunning images of Miami. Hanging out of a twin-engine helicopter, he photographed some of Miami’s most iconic sites from a new angle.
Lieber’s aerial photos reveal the beauty of Miami at night with a skyline illuminated by lights. His collection takes viewers on a breath-taking journey around Miami from on high – with shots of well-known landmarks including South Beach, Miami Beach, Biscayne Bay and the Art Deco District.
Although captured in every finest detail, the subjects of Timo’s large-scale photographs are often shrouded in mystery. It is important for him to draw the viewers’ attention and keep them guessing or discovering hidden details and layers of an image.
Timo likes simple, striking compositions and he relies on light to be the key ingredient in the mix, be it in bright day or at night. Timo is always on a look out for strong geometrical elements in his photographs and Miami is somewhat chaotic street pattern throws in a perfect challenge.
Timo Lieber is a London-based, dynamic, thoughtful, award-winning aerial and landscape photographer. Timo has photographed across the globe, from the Arctic Circle to remote deserts, and his images capture audiences worldwide.
Through five series of images, we can see Timo’s evolution as an artist and photographer. Moving from quiet admiration of nature’s magnificent landscapes into questioning and analysing the ways and results of human interactions with nature, we can see progression of Timo’s artistic fascination with Earth – and humans’ interaction with it – as his subjects.
Timo is the 2013 winner of the International Pano Awards (Australia), the world’s largest competition of its kind and judged by Peter Lik that year. He has received numerous further awards, including International Photography Awards (US), National Geographic (US), PX3 Prix de la Photographie (France), Wildlife Photographer of the Year (UK), Sony World Photography Awards (UK) and Global Arctic Awards (Russia), amongst others.
Timo’s work has been exhibited in the UK and Continental Europe and his images are held in both corporate and private collections. One of his images is currently on display at the Natural History Museum, London.
