Jeff Milstein’s wonderful 2005-2009 photographs of the underbellies of airplanes are enjoying a year-long exhibition at the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum in Washington. By positioning himself at the end of a runway (often at the Los Angeles International Airport), Milstein would take perfectly symmetrical shots and post edit out the sky, neutralising the scene and rendering the planes like portraits. Beautiful. Aircraft: The Jet as Art is now showing until November 25. (via: itsnicethat)
