Amazing Airport Aerials
I've seen Jeffrey Milstein's work before. A few yeas ago he achieved a modicum of fame when his typology of commercial airliners in flight went moderately viral. There was something fascinating about studying these flying machines as they passed overhead. I have a similar feeling about Milstein's new body of work, Flying, which depicts the beauty (yes, believe it or not, beauty) of busy airports when seen from the air. The logistical challenges aside, it's an impressive body of work that I hope Milstein will continue to expand upon outside of the congested airports of the Northeast. Even more interesting, I think, would be a typology of many airports, big and small, from the perspective of the planes. Either way, it's a beautiful collection worth a look—especially if you've got a strong gut reaction to the thought of considering an airport "beautiful."
