Join Jeffrey Milstein in conversation with Anthony Matsena, as they explore the processes and stories behind Jeffrey’s iconic photographs.
Jeffrey Milstein was born in the Bronx in 1944, received a degree in architecture from UC Berkley in 1968 and practising as an architect before turning to photography in 2000. Growing up his two interests were art and flying, becoming a pilot at the age of 17.
In recent years Milstein has created award winning unique aerial images of man-made landscapes that are iconic and emblematic of the modern world – his first solo show in the UK ‘Patterns of Culture’ is currently on view at Messums London. Images of Paris, London, New York, Rome and Florence, each taken from small planes and helicopters using very high-resolution digital cameras. Join the conversation to hear more about this unique process and the story behind his practice.
