All of us have seen dry, uninspiring photographs of a plane's wing shot during flight, but Phillip Kalantzis-Cope's series "On The Plane" makes you instantly forget those banal images, momentarily reawakening the desire to pick up a camera and document the flight. In a text written by Kalantzis-Cope, the photographer talks about the idea of flight, helping us to get inside his head and understand how he takes such compelling photographs in such a well-documented place.
