The only way for us humans to feel closer with one another is seeing the rest of the world and get to know the different people and places that exist. While that may not be terribly easy to do, what will make us feel a bit closer with someone millions of miles away is a close view from the top. The images that you are about to see are not actual images taken from a satellite, but artificially created photos of the actual places made by Russian graphic artist Anton Balazh. To be clear, Anton did not create new places from his mind, but he recreated the actual places putting some extra light for us to see more details.
Europe and North Africa.
The Arabian Peninsula and eastern Africa.
Japan and eastern Asia.
Anton Balazh has a reputation for recreating artificially images from the world either they are dipped in the dark or shinning bright from the sun. You can visit his Shutterstock portfolio and discover more of his work.
