American Photographer Captures Poetry In Motion At Airports

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 last year 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. Milstein’s work has been shown in dozens of museums and galleries in the U.S. and internationally including the Kopeikin Gallery in Los Angeles. 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.
