Jeffrey Milstein infuses his photography with his lifelong creative passion and fascination for flight. A professional photographer, graphic designer, and architect, his trained eye and steady hand produce images of pristine clarity. Using photographic post-processing techniques, he distills subjects from the background to focus attention on design, color, and symmetry. Milstein’s prints invite the viewer to experience the world from above.
