LA and NY from Above

With his aerial portrait of Los Angeles and New York, photographer Jeffrey Milstein visualizes Los Angeles and New York from a bird's point of view. Milstein climbed in helicopters to get a straight down ninety-degree angle and to explore the different patterns of the cities. His images combine architecture, science and art.The two cities have a deeper significance to Jeffrey Milstein. He grew up in Los Angeles and now lives in New York. He states to have been continually awed by the difference an aerial view makes. Urban topography is just one aspect of his work. He also captured events and activities such as the Macy's Thanskgiving Day Parade and outings at the beach.Of course, capturing contrasts and patterns from the air depend on the quality of the equipment. Jeffrey Milstein says, he used his ALPA 12 camera for many shots in the project, often combined with the Phase One 80MP CCD digital back and the Rodenstock / ALPA Grandagon -N 4.5/65 mm lens as well as the Schneider / ALPA Apo-Helvetar 5.6/75 mm. The pictures in the following Portfolio are all made with these setups.Links[/en/artikel/alpa-12-tc|ALPA 12 TC][/en/portfolios/milstein-jeffrey-lany|Portfolio LANY][/en/portfolios/milstein-jeffrey-cruise-ships|Portfolio Cruise Ships]Website Jeffrey Milstein
