john galt revealed

One of the few surprises in an otherwise dreary exhibition of London street photography at the Museum of the City of New York was the discovery of turn of the century documentary photos taken by none other than John Galt. It begs the question: did Ayn Rand know?

even higher than the eiffel tower

I don’t know anything about Gilles Vidal except that he’s a Paris-based photographer who somehow managed to get a panoramic camera up above the Eiffel Tower.  The result: crazy and amazing birds-eye views of the City of Light. Check them out HERE.

Standing at the end of a runway, Jeffrey Milstein captures images of aircraft moments before landing. Carefully positioned and using a high-resolution digital camera he photographs them from below as they streak past at speeds up to 175 miles per hour. A professional photographer, graphic designer, and architect, Milstein’s trained eye and steady hand produces images of pristine clarity, 33 of which are currently on display at the National Air and Space Museum in Washington, DC. In this photographic analysis, or typology, the neutral background and precise symmetry focus attention on the design, color and symmetry of each aircraft: razor-sharp lines reveal technological complexity; spread wings evoke the form of birds. The arrayed images bring to mind a scientific study of pinned butterflies. Elegantly distilled, each of Milstein’s super-sized prints seem to pull you into the air, as though you’re going along for the ride.
