Jeffery Milstein @ Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum

Aircraft: The Jet as Art

Exhibition: November 2011 – November 2012

Milstein’s favorite spot for photographing aircraft is runway 24R at Los Angeles International Airport. “You have to find the right spot underneath the flight path,” he told the Museum’s Carolyn Russo, who curates the exhibition. “Not too far away and not too close. The plane can’t be coming in too high or too low, and if the wing dips a little bit to correct for wind, the symmetry will be unequal. It is just a matter of finding the ‘sweet spot’ so that the aircraft is lined up exactly in the camera’s frame.”
