JFK 21

Jeffrey Milstein è  stato affascinato dall’aviazione e dal volo sin da ragazzino, quando costruiva modellini di aerei. La sua consacrazione come fotografo è avvenuta nel 2012 grazie ad una grande mostra allo Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum. La maggior parte delle foto esposte, escluse quelle di apparecchi militari, furono scattate a Los Angeles LAX in un periodo di una dozzina di anni; le immagini evocano ricordi di meraviglia e soggezione per un rito condiviso da migliaia di appassionati del volo: sedersi in fondo a una pista a guardare gli aerei atterrare e decollare.

La serie Flying raccoglie immagini di apparecchi in volo, così da sembrare aerei giocattolo o delicati modellini, e aeroporti (New York JFK e Newark EWR) scattati dall’alto.

Photographer Jeffrey Milstein has been fascinated with aviation and flying since he was a young boy building toy models. A larger full-scale show of his photos was exhibited in 2012 at the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum. The majority of the images, except for the military aircraft, were taken at LAX over the last dozen years. His pictures evoke memories of wonder and awe from a common ritual shared by many aerial aficionados: sitting near the end of a runway, watching in anticipation for planes to land.

The series, named Flying, features aerial shots of airport runways and airplanes, making them look like children’s toys or the intricate scale models of an aviation enthusiast. They feature New York’s JFK and Newark airport in New Jersey both during the day and at night.
