Life Cycles

Life Cycles features the creation, use, and eventual destruction of aircraft.  Created from an aerial vantage point over numerous locations on the West Coast of the USA, Life Cycles reverses our usual perception of aviation: instead of photographing airplanes from the ground or from within, here they are photographed from above. 

The majority of people have only been able to experience aviation through crowded concourses, cramped seating, and tiny windows. The elevated perspective used to create Life Cycles both helps the viewer appreciate the complex infrastructure supporting air travel and visualize the aggregate of human knowledge and determination that allows us to effortlessly criss-cross the globe.

Life Cycles has been featured in publications such as WIRED, National Geographic, the Wall Street Journal and CNN.
