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.’

  • I can confirm the green EVA not to be a Boeing 747-400 due to the it only have 2 main gears. 747-400 have 2 body gears and 2 wing gears. The plane is likely to be Boeing 777-300ER series due to the wing tip structure and elongated fuselage

  • The green EVA looks like an Airbus A320. Definetly not a 747, its only got two engines.

  • Ya Chris… he shudda know’d the diff between a 3-7 and 47.

    Too bad decent, digital cameras can shoot this automatically. In the old days you had to rely on your finger and an acute sense of timing. I used to photographs of artillery rocket shoots in the Army. It was tough to get a good shot with a TLR.

  • Want to hear something super nerdy? That isn’t an Eva Air 747, it is an Eva Air 777. A 747 has four motors. A triple 7 can be ID’d by the three axles per landing gear strut.
