Up In The Air (nearly)

I first discovered John Schabel’s melancholy and haunting photos years ago in New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art. In his series entitled “Passengers”, each evocative image was taken during that uncertain limbo that occurs when passengers have been seated in a plane, but the flight is not ready for take-off.

Schabel began the series in the early 1990s, but has just released the collection of gelatin silver prints in a new book from Twin Palms Publisher aptly titled “Passengers”.
