Just two weeks ago, I took my first flight after about seven years of being grounded to Earth. Though all childish excitement of flying had subsided, I found myself marveling at the logistics of the airport. Perhaps I am not alone in this fascination, for photographer Jeffrey Milstein has captured everyone’s attention with his intriguing aerials of busy airports. Known for his work with planes and the like, Milstein approaches the airline industry with a rather different perspective – not from that of an expert and enthusiast, but that of an admirer. The series, Flying, is a diary of the tarmac; the planes seem to wait impatiently at their gates, surrounded by the snaking and complex highways leading into the hub of the airport. Scale is hard to believe, as the photographs finally afford us a still shot of the runway’s length, the terminal’s immensity, and that floating feeling of being high in the skies.
