Magical Aerial Shots of Los Angeles

From the ground, Los Angeles’ vast landscape can seem like an endless mess of freeways, buildings and hills. But when viewing it from above—as 71-year-old photographer Jeffrey Milstein found out—the sunny Southern California city really shines. For his series “Flying over LA,” Milstein skipped the use of drones and took the traditional approach to aerial photography, dangerously dangling from a helicopter to capture the mix of unique neighborhoods—from La Brea to Long Beach—that make up the charm of LA County. Be sure to catch the magical set of images at NYC’s Benrubi Gallery and LA’s Kopeikin Gallery until 22 August.
