“Fore”. “Hit it.” “Next hole.” “Hit it again.” “Hit it over the flag”. And so on. But even the best golfers can’t ignore the chaos.
Away from the tournaments and tees, the world isn’t so organised. We live in an instant world, with cars popping up to land in yards, shoppers wheeling large sacks over pavements, birds hitting guide posts, and unmanned drones flying.
But sometimes the chaos is beamed down to us, giving the pleasure of watching golfers on a green to take on.
This extraordinary image shows a drone flying above the famed Greenbrier resort in West Virginia.
In it, one player is staring a drone down with a startling gaze. What they’re seeing is the gaze of Adrienne Berg of Albuquerque, New Mexico, perhaps the most extraordinary drone photographer on the planet.
In her third year as a member of the New Mexico State University course, Berg has gained a keen interest in photography and filmmaking, and her work explores the relationship between drones and the world around them.
In her images Berg draws upon her desire to blend the intimate human experience with technology.
“I love photographing people — I try to turn their mundane experience into interesting photos,” she says. “I love the challenge of combining the natural beauty of these beautiful people and landscapes with my passion for photography and filmmaking. I love capturing unique moments and beauty in everyday situations.”
