The Wright Brothers studied and developed such things as cambered surfaces and three-axis controls in their development of the flying machine. Those cambered surfaces, curves and lines would eventually take on various colors from shiny silver to very bright hues. I suspect Orville and Wilbur didn’t envision the many ways the airplane would eventually be used during the next century. Even the designers and engineers who followed never fully knew the impact their work would have on human lives.
Photographers have been capturing images of flying machines since the beginning. This study consists of images of aircraft designed for the military. The close up detail was most interesting. Here are few images showing various surfaces, parts, colors and structures that seem simple and innocent enough, however, in the overall context, these aircraft become something different when displayed as fine art photography. I hope you enjoy them.
