Flying


2012

A new and ongoing series of photographs shot from the air showing 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


Do airports have personalities? If so, JFK International Airport must possess a dark and

complex intelligence: Broad flats of black pavement suggest an ocean of serene thoughts,

while elsewhere snaking streams of roadways hint at either mathematical genius or full blown

schizophrenia.

But that's probably reading too much into the artwork of Jeffrey Milstein, a New Yorker

who's given much of his life to documenting airplanes and their surroundings. Airports

are just cool to look at, especially from way up in the sky where you can see the

megalithic structures in their awesome entirety
