Bankrupt Luxury: aerial shots of vacant mansions

These stunning aerial shots taken by Michael Light are a well-composed illustration of economic collapse. This is luxurious frivolity after it’s been put through the ringer of bankruptcy.

Taken from his two-seater plane, Light shoots his images of abandoned dreams while simultaneously piloting his craft. With a focus on the environment and the many ways contemporary america interacts with it, Light’s landscapes are both haunting and brutally honest.

These images are a perfect pairing with the recent rekindling of fascination in Jay Gatsby and the crash of that opulent life-style.
