"The Eye of God - Recreating Andreas Gursky, Bahrain 1 (Google Earth Remix)" 2009 - 2015

"As many young photographers, I always dreamt about flying around the world, visiting spectacular spots and places, just like Superstar Andreas Gursky does. So finally I decided to stop dreaming and just do It - in Google Earth."
