Look inside

Suspended in time; a sense of waiting pervades this valley where nothing has happened for a thousand years. The shadow of an ancient camel thorn reaches out, like a blackened hand to the delicate tracings of the Tsauchab River; yearning for the life that once was.

Like a giant marine lung, sapphire bronchi branch out through pale low-tide sandbanks in the Walvis Bay Lagoon. 

Heading out into the void like intrepid intergalactic space ships, five barchan dunes patrol the outer rim of the Kaokoveld.

Flying thousands of hours in their specially modified aircraft, aerial photographers
Jay and Jan Roode have spent more than a decade photographing some of the most remote and spectacular wilderness areas of southern Africa from above.

The continent of Africa has always held an irresistible allure and fascination for them, and they seem content only when free to roam the skies, capturing awe-inspiring images of the natural wonders of the region. Their images convey an intimacy with, and reverence for, the wilderness that reflects their passion for the conservation and preservation of the enthralling landscapes they have flown over.

Aerial Art is the culmination of a remarkable journey: a vibrant collection of wild and enchanting images that are instantly recognisable by their unique style and approach.

In the Walvis Bay wetlands, impossible colours coalesce on turquoise waters, where a legion of flamingos adds a stippled salmon hue to a canvas of rust and aquamarine.

Meet the authors

Flying thousands of hours in their specially modified aircraft, aerial photographers Jay and Jan Roode have spent more than a decade photographing some of the most remote and spectacular wilderness areas of southern Africa from above. 

The continent of Africa has always held an irresistible allure and fascination for them, and they seem content only when free to roam the skies, capturing awe-inspiring images of the natural wonders of the region.

Aerial Art is the culmination of a remarkable journey; a vibrant collection of wild and en­chant­ing images that are instantly recognisable by their unique style and approach. Their images convey an intimacy with, and reverence for, the wilder­ness that reflect their passion for the con­ser­vation and preservation of the enthralling land­scapes they have flown over.

Their photography has been widely published in magazines, including Africa Geographic, National Geographic Traveler, GEO, BBC Wildlife, Nature’s Best Photography, CNN, Wild Travel and the United Nations Environment Programme publications. Their images have received com­men­­dations in both local and international photo­­graphic competitions.

Today Jan and Jay Roode continue docu­menting Africa from the air and offer bespoke aerial safaris, taking visitors to unique locations they have discovered during their travels.
