Dan Piech's "Aloft" series captures the breathtaking grandeur of the skies that so many of us take for granted as we soar through the air.

From his Manhattan home in Tribeca, Dan has an unobstructed view of one of the most trafficked airspaces on the planet. With sight-lines to numerous air routes, he has studied the New York sky and the planes that fill it for years. His series focuses on the best moments when sky and plane speak to one another.

As part of the VAST artist collective, Dan uses advanced imaging techniques and equipment to create the photos for his Aloft series at incredibly high resolutions, often dozens of times higher resolution than ordinary photos. This enables the prints from the photos to be perfectly sharp even at very large sizes.

Backdropped by the heavens, the tiny planes in Aloft humble us and remind of us of our place on this beautiful planet.

VAST PRINTS

THE HIGHEST RESOLUTION PHOTOGRAPHIC PRINTS EVER CREATED

VAST Prints are fine art photographic paper prints that arrive ready to be mounted and/or framed. They are created using the sharpest photographic printer in commercial use: a very rare specialty printer that formerly printed currency and military surveillance imagery.  Learn more  

Every VAST Print has two certificates of authenticity hand-signed by the artist and the printmaker: one affixed to the print and one standalone. Additionally, each print is assigned a unique serial number via a permanent hologram seal and recorded in our registry. Its provenance is tracked and verified using state-of-the-art digital blockchain encryption technology.

VAST DISPLAYS

THE HIGHEST QUALITY PHOTOGRAPHIC DISPLAYS EVER CREATED

VAST Displays are ready-to-hang works of art that contain a VAST Print sealed between flame-polished acrylic glass and an aluminum backing. A hidden brace on the back causes the display to gracefully float off the wall for a sleek, modern frameless look that complements nearly any decor style.  Learn more
