Another chance to see Jeff Milstein’s The Jet as Art in Washington

Jeff Milstein’s 2005-2009 photographs of airplanes, divorced of their surroundings with under bellies exposed like some kind of entomological specimens rather than a hulking weight of airborne steel, are enjoying a year-long exhibition at the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum in Washington. What better excuse to right a wrong (why didn’t we see these before???) and get them up on the site for you all to enjoy?

The photographer, after positioning himself in a “sweet spot” at the end a runway, (frequently at the Los Angeles International Airport) would take perfectly symmetrical shots and post edit out the sky, neutralising the scene and rendering the planes like portraits.

Aircraft: The Jet as Art is now showing until November 25.
