“The outward appearance or apparent form of something, especially when the reality is different.” New Oxford American Dictionary
There’s a miraculousness of flight that seems to belie the confines of nature and a sense of awe in the clouds. When I began this project, my studio was directly beneath an LAX landing flight path. Hearing, feeling and seeing it’s imposing presence every three minutes urged me to document them as modern wonders as well as formidable vehicles that plummet to the earth. This photo-based project combines homage to David Hockney’s use of distorted scale and high key colors with in-camera double exposures and post process technique to suggest this dual perception.
