New York from the sky

Creativity surrounds us in all forms and shapes, one just needs to have a perspective and mindset to identify and admire it. Same could be said for renowned photographer Jeffrey Milstein. He has released a new set of photographs for LANY exhibition showcasing aerial views of New York and Los Angeles.

Milstein has been famous for taking photographs of planes from earth but this time he has totally reversed his approach by using a high-resolution camera. He took a flight on a helicopter for taking these images at an altitude of 1000-2000 feet thus revealing an entirely new side to these cities.

According to Milstein,

“I was interested in documenting the patterns, layering, and complexity of cities, highlighting airports, container ports, recreational facilities, and residential and commercial developments, all of which grow organically over time and are connected by roads and arterial highways like a living organism.”

Whether it be an ordered cluster of residential buildings enveloped by trees of Stuyvesant Town in New York City, a busy urban life comprising of vehicles and urban-scape in Columbus circle or a serene view of Statue of Liberty, it reveals that there is a geometry in all the chaos around us. One just needs to open their eyes and admire them.
