From the street level, places like Los Angeles and New York City can be chaotic and confounding. However, from up in the air, you can see that these cities are works of symmetry just waiting to be discovered.
71-year-old aerial photographer Jeffrey Milstein captures symmetrical urban planning hiding in plain sight. Taking pictures from a helicopter hovering 2,000 feet in the air, he’s documented apartment buildings, monuments, parks, and other public spaces – all neatly arranged into mesmerising geometric patterns.
It’s a refreshing perspective, especially for those who’ve grown accustomed (and tired) of seeing these cities from the same old point-of-view.
“I want to show things from the perspective that few people get to see, that I find beautiful and fascinating,” explained Milstein. “It’s that view of earth where you see how things relate geometrically, like the Park La Brea housing development—you would never see that amazing, Mason-inspired geometry from the ground.”
