“For three years my family and I lived directly within the flight path of Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport. Located in the heart of the city, Sky Harbor is the ninth busiest airport in the United States. On any given day, Sky Harbor’s three runways funnel some 100,000 people in 1,200 aircraft through the airspace above the Phoenix suburbs. The ever-present roar of 737s, much like the late-summer lull of suburban lawn mowers, is deeply embedded into the fabric of Phoenix and the experience of living there.
Over the course of five days in the spring of 2010, I photographed every single airplane that I encountered throughout my usual commute and daily activities. They were captured quickly, using a small point-and-shoot digital camera, then substantially cropped to remove any context while openly embracing the vernacular qualities of the medium. At the end of the five days, my path had intersected with 208 aircraft, an estimated 20,000 passengers, and 104 tons of air cargo. The resulting photographs are compiled in sequential order into a 420 page case-bound book.”
