Marilyn Bridges

Marilyn Bridges a bâti toute sa carrière sur la photographie aérienne, réalisant ses prises de vue depuis des petits avions monomoteurs ou, plus rarement, depuis des hélicoptères.
Depuis les années 1970, elle survole principalement les sites préhistoriques ou archéologiques, photographiant de préférence aux heures où le soleil est bas et que les ombres s’allongent, sculptant le paysage de manière dramatique.
