Jeffrey Milstein Captures Ornate Urban Patterns From Above
- Charmaine Li
Photographer Jeffrey Milstein captures intricate urban patterns from above. The series, titled LANY, features vivid aerial photographs of neighborhoods in both New York City and Los Angeles. Shot from an altitude of 1,000 to 2,000 feet, the photos reveal surprising characteristics of the city that are often invisible on the ground.
A statement about his work says: “The images suggest that however chaotic or inscrutable modern life might appear, it is tied to age-old patterns that guide in ways we don’t immediately perceive, but which nevertheless guide us through our daily routines.”
