A photographic journey to airports around the world.  Photographer Carolyn Russo seeks to transform the ordinary in this collection of 100 large-format photos of 85 contemporary and historical airport towers in the US and all the world, including China and Sweden. Combining documentary clarity with an artistic eye, she highlights the visual aesthetics, abstract lines and forms, and even anthropomorphic qualities of the towers. Towers were also chosen based on historical background, popularity, and location. Sepia-toned and cyan-toned photos are provided on every page. Preface written by an aviation expert. The book is published in conjunction with an exhibit of the photos at the Smithsonian’s National Air and Space Museum.
