Powerful Aerial Photography of International Airports by Jeffrey Milstein
Always good to have a perspective on things! Photographer and former Berkeley architecture student Jeffrey Milstein illustrates this in his numerous artworks with a predominant aviation theme. His recent exhibition featured intriguing photography of flying commercial aircrafts captured from beneath. This new series stays true to the theme, yet captures striking aerial images of famous airports, such as Newark Liberty International Airport (first two shots) and JFK International Airport (the following photos of the post).
From above, the airports showcase more than their practical nature. Jeffrey Milstein describes these works as revealing “the patterns, layering and complexity of cities, and the circulation patterns for travel, such as waterways, roads, and airports that grow organically over time much like a living organism.” We like this unexpected approach of finding artistic meaning to an unconventional public space.
