american photographer, architect and graphic designer jeffrey milstein will be exhibiting a collection from his ongoing aircraft series at the aipad
photography show from the 4th through to the 7th of april, 2013. millstein fulfills his lifelong passion for all flying craft through the language
of photography, capturing the mechanical beasts when they are exactly perpendicular to the camera’s frame and just moments before landing.
millstein then implements specialized processing techniques to remove the background and amplify the image’s clarity, vibrancy and color.
the highly detailed visualizations celebrate the complexity of the machines, freezing in time the beauty of astounding engineering achievement.
milstein says of the work:
‘in this portfolio I explore a typology of the varied cruciform shapes of jet aircraft flying precisely overhead as if frozen in space. I have
decontextualized these highly detailed photographs to express the complexity and beauty of form. that these giant conglomerations of aluminum,
can gracefully lift from earth is amazing. that they can return safely some hours later on another part of the globe is even more amazing.
my aircraft photographs are an attempt to capture that sense of beauty and wonder but also the vulnerability that we all feel in today’s world.’
