Jeffrey Milstein‘s aerial photos offer a view of New York City that few residents are able to experience. Using a high-resolution camera, Milstein takes to the skies, hovering above the city in a helicopter to capture stunning bird’s-eye shots of the city’s best-known landmarks. From an altitude of 1,000 – 2,000 feet, milstein captures unparalleled views of landmarks, parks, neighborhoods, and city centers that uncover typically unseen architectural and geometrical facets of these metropolises from above. Man-made landscapes are reconsidered as surprising shapes — evident in the symmetrical behavior of housing develoments in ‘NYC 28 stuyvesant town’.
‘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.’ – Jeffrey Milstein
