Every week in honour of #PhaidonFriday I pick one of my favourite features from the Phaidon.com Agenda. Today, I'm delving into the archives and revisiting Paradise Lost by aerial photography's pioneer, Georg Gerster.
Between 1976 and 1978, Gerster was granted rare permission to record the landscapes and cities of Persia. The patterns and features that are formed, sometimes only momentarily, make some of the most amazing aerial photographs. These are for fans of geologist turned photographer, Berhard Edmaier and his books Earthsong and Earth on Fire.
Phaidon.com has a gallery of photographs from the book Paradise Lost and there is also a video with Georg Gerster at the opening of his exhibition in March 2010.

Every week in honour of #PhaidonFriday I pick my favourite feature from Phaidon.com. The onset of winter this week has lead me to think of sunnier pastures and Miami seems to be a good place to land.
The Miami branch of Art Basel is in town from the 2nd to 5th of December, so there's only this weekend to visit. The Phaidon.com Agenda has an Insider's Guide to the fair from Sara McCrory, Curator of Frieze Foundation.
Galleries to watch would be 303 Gallery and Andrew Kreps in New York and Maisterravalbuena Galeria in Madrid.

If you are looking for Christmas cards this year, look no further than Just A Few Cards. This collection of nine artists was chosen by Paul Octavious of WeBreakPencils.com and Shawn Kelly of Wallblank.com after they discovered they had a shared opinion about the state of Christmas cards available to them.
