Derived from the Daily Overview Instagram account--which showcases the most extraordinary images of industry, agriculture, architecture, and nature taken from satellite imaging systems--this stunning and unique collection of photographs accompanied by thoughtful captions offers an unexpected look at humanity. Conceived as an Instagram account less than two years ago--and now causing a global sensation--Overview offers breathtaking photographs that showcase the incredible way in which humans have shaped the Earth's landscape. The project was inspired by, and derives its name from, the "Overview Effect"--a sensation that astronauts experience when given the opportunity to look down and view the Earth as a whole. Through more than 250 stunning photographs--which highlight extraordinary patterns while also revealing a deeper story about humanity and our inextricable ties to the environment--and accompanying captions, readers are given an opportunity to appreciate our home in its entirety, to reflect on its beauty and fragility all at once.
