Eyes In The Sky Photobook
"Eyes in the Sky" is a book of photographs by Patrick Passe and Wendy Smith from the 90s. It took fifteen years of skydiving to reach completion.
With 200 photos and 168 pages, "Eyes in the Sky" is a book one will keep lovingly on one’s bookshelf so as to remember some unique moments that have marked the history of sport parachuting.
As years go by, photos pile up to form a kind of family album that one always enjoys leafing through. A remarkable album for a prestigious family of skydivers, free between earth and sky. Then one day, it occurs to you that these photos must not fade and that the best shots in this album have to be made available to all those who look on skydiving with a passion.
Slides are put on the light table. Great moments come back to life, as do the characters who created them. These memories have to be saved for sure, for tomorrow or for a more distant future. They have to be given to the people of the next century. The idea of making a book then crystallises and the plan becomes reality.
