Accompanied by an expert pilot, Seckler was able to compose his shots less than 500 feet from the ground. This unique vantage point gave him the opportunity to capture dream-like photographs unattainable from land or in a jetliner. “Being above the ground at such low elevations, and having the ability to precisely maneuver, was like gliding over an enormous painting and being able to create brushstrokes at will,” says Seckler.

Seckler’s expertly composed photographs capture glimpses of the great wildlife and landscape diversity that Botswana is famous for, from the vivid colors in moss-rich waters to the textured tracks left behind on the salt pans by grazing animals. The soft and subdued color palette gives the photos an ethereal and painterly touch.

Seckler’s photographic works are currently on display at the Robin Rice Gallery in New York.
