Gilman Contemporary presents Jeffrey Milstein‘s aircraft and aerial photographs for the first time in Sun Valley. In his Aircraft series, recently exhibited at the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum, Milstein captures these mechanical beasts from below, as they descend and are exactly perpendicular to the camera’s frame. Through his use of symmetry and a white background he is able to reveal the complexity and beauty of these machines. In his most recent aerial series, Milstein looks at Los Angeles and New York from above. Leaning out of helicopters he captures stunning bird’s-eye shots of the cities' landmarks revealing striking patterns from a point of view rarely seen. LANY explores the differing architecture of LA and NY and the ways this has influenced our relationship to our environment and how environment has influenced industrial and residential development.

Originally working as an architect, Milstein has always had an eye for the way humanity influences, and is influenced by our creations. Much like the industrial portraits of the late conceptual photographers Bernd and Hilla Becher, Milstein’s work points our attention to the complex beauty of what industry has created.
