From delivering packages down the street to performing reconnaissance on a battlefield, drones are deployed for a range of activities (sometimes controversially) and have become a ubiquitous mark of our modern times.
Because of their ability to go where humans can’t (or won’t), drones provide us with a new, often fascinating birds-eye view of the world. While this obviously comes in handy in more serious situations (think: natural disasters or warzones), we have drones to thank for the recent surge in beautiful aerial photography among hobbyists around the world.

Check out some of his recent photographs (below), which reveal the fascinating geometry of Brazil’s urban landscape—and the new heights to which drones let us to soar.
