Heavy metal, as the wide body jets are known, is the ultimate achievement in engineering and design. Aircrafts are a symbol of how vulnerable our highly technological society has become.
Jeffrey Miltstein has always been dreaming about flying an airplane. He became intimately familiar with aircraft design, and at the age of 17, he received his pilot’s license.
In his portfolio he explores a typology of the varied cruciform shapes of jet aircraft flying precisely overhead as if frozen in space. To express the complexity and beauty of form he decontextualized these highly detailed photographs. He has created true art of the airplanes.
