Photographer Jeffrey Milstein’s photographs of airplanes are currently being shown at the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum in Washington, D.C. Mr. Milstein has been fascinated with the modern jet since childhood, earning his pilot’s license while he was a teenager. He loved hanging around the end of the runway at Los Angeles International Airport, feeling that he chould almost touch the planes as they went by. He still loves spending time on the runway, and often shoots the aircraft as they are flying directly overhead at close to 200 mph. Mr. Milstein: “I shoot mostly at LAX, as the planes are coming in for landing. I hand hold a Contax 645 camera body with a Phase One digital back… After capturing the image I mask and neutralize the sky so as to show only the aircraft in perfect symmetry. This isolates it like a portrait.” “AirCraft: The Jet as Art,” is on view through Nov. 25.
