From Emma Taggart’s article for My Modern Met:
Seckler first took to the skies in 2009, when a pilot in Botswana invited him to join him on his ultra-light aircraft to fly over the region’s salt flats. “It’s just me and the pilot sitting right next to each other, knees practically touching,” recalls Seckler. “There are no real doors, no windows—there’s only a windshield, propeller, and wings.” The photographer later returned to South Africa in 2016, covering nearly 2,000 miles and 45 hours of flight in just one week. From zebras dotted across green vistas to buffalo journeying across white sands, Seckler captured extraordinary bird’s-eye view shots of the region’s diverse natural landscapes and the wildlife that inhabit them.
