Paris From the Air, due out April 6 from Rizzoli, is Jeffrey Milstein's second book of aerial photography, following 2017's LA NY (Thames & Hudson), which documented New York City and Los Angeles from small planes and helicopters. For his latest book, Milstein had to secure permission from municipal authorities in Paris to fly over the city, authorization that is rarely granted, but which was eventually given to him. During two trips over the French capital in the spring of 2019, the Woodstock-based photographer shot hundreds of photos from a twin turbine Squirrel SA 355N helicopter, documenting the classic architecture and sun-lit avenues. Because the height of the city's buildings has been restricted for many years, most of the architecture and streetscape of Paris are on a smaller, human-scale than the skyscraping coastal megalopolises of the US. Milstein's photos, captured using the latest aeronautic and photographic technology, show a rare aerial glimpse of a timeless city.
