Complexities Airports Photographed From Above

1 comment

Some of you readers may remember Jeffrey Milstein from his photographs of the underbellies of aircraft, which he captured by standing at the end of runways while airplanes flew overhead. Milstein has come with a new series that shows “the patterns, layering and complexity of cities, and the circulation patterns for travel, such as waterways, roads, and airports that grow organically over time much like a living organism.”

Jeffrey Milstein’s favorite pastime as a kid was hanging around the end of the runway at the Los Angeles International Airport watching planes take-off and land. He was obsessed with planes from as long as he could remember as a child, building and flying model airplanes, before he got his pilots license at the age of 17.


His mesmerizing shots of Boeings and helicopters earned him shows in places like the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, and the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum. His recent series will be on display at the AIPAD Photography Show, April 4 through 7, 2013 at the Park Avenue Armory in New York City.
