Photography // Saturday, August 01, 2015
We love the way Jeffrey Milstein’s photographs of cities make strange out of what seems like ordinary city landscapes. Milstein’s photos of Los Angeles and New York choose frames that call the extraordinary out in urban planning, landscape design, and simply focus on the geometry of intersecting architectures. His series on cruise ships documents the luxury transportation with an aesthetic frankness. Milstein studied architecture at Berkeley and currently works out of New York.
