    In 2002, Laforet won the Pulitzer Prize. He was awarded it for his pictures of people in Pakistan and Afghanistan suffering during the post 9/11 conflicts.

    He told Huh Magazine: "It took us 45 minutes to get far enough away from downtown and to an elevation of 10,800 feet in our helicopter - or 8,799 feet above Las Vegas which itself is 2,001 feet above sea level."

    It's a follow-up to his acclaimed series of pictures of New York from the air.
