Paris: From the Air

Combining daring aerial photography with the restricted airspace over Paris provides both breathtaking and unparalleled views.

From sunrise to sunset, Paris is one of the most photographed cities in the world. Shooting with the newest high-resolution medium-format professional cameras while leaning out of helicopters making steep turns with the door off, Milstein captures the highly detailed, iconic, straight-down images that set his work apart.

Milstein's distinctive style--straight down--leads to fresh insights of the urban design of this great city. In a way that is impossible from street level, you can see the old neighborhoods of Montmartre and Montparnasse; iconic historical monuments like the Eiffel Tower, Arc de Triomphe or the Invalides; and modern Paris like La Défense or the new neighborhoods around the Bibliothèque Nationale. As a bonus, there is a portfolio of images of the gardens and buildings of Louis XIV's great palace, Versailles.

Milstein brings his unique and unmatched aerial vistas of Paris to life--every angle, every moment, every season. This is sure to be treasured by tourists and Parisians alike.

“Oh Là Là! Magnifique images! Jeffrey Milstein has many talents. He's an architect. He's a respected photographer who shows work in museums and galleries around the world. And he's a pilot. If ever a book was a perfect symphony of a single person's talents, Paris: From The Air is it. Milstein's eye for structure and his unquestionable knack for capturing the moment reach sumptuous heights in a compendium of some of the most wanderlust-inspiring pictures ever captured of the City of Light.”
