In this hand-placed aerial photo of the SF Bay, the juxtaposition of salt-bed shores creates a jewel-tone Rothko-like painterly effect.

Professor Charles Benton

Environmental Design professor at UC Berkeley, Charles Benton pioneered a movement in photography by suspending a camera from a kite to capture birds-eye images, now formally called Kite Aerial Photography (KAP.) Specifically focusing on a geographically-rich area of the San Francisco Bay called the Cargill Salt Ponds, Charles captured time-specific and exclusive photographs, having been granted special key-access to this region, which is now restricted and being restored today. The author of Saltscapes : The Kite Aerial Photography of Charles Benton, Charles draws on the architecture within nature, its vivid, striking colors, and natural landscape face to inspire his ‘otherworldly’ photographs. Through unique KAP technique, Charles was able to transform the earth into awe-inspiring and inimitable artwork, featured exclusively here at eiwil. 5% of proceeds to fund the Natural Resources Defense Council (http://www.nrdc.org), 5% to participating eiwil artists, and an additional $1 will go to supporting the South Bay Salt Pond Restoration Project initiatives (http://www.southbayrestoration.org).
