For the last few months I've had the pleasure of working with friend and fellow photographer Julian Hibbard on a collaborative project that began years ago with an elderly Chilean artist and his hand-assembled, model planes. Below are samples and a brief description of the project.
This ongoing project documents an extensive collection of small scale, one-off, hand-assembled, model planes, made by an elderly Chilean artist. All the planes are from the WWI & II period and are fashioned by him using only found materials. Like objects glimpsed in a dream, the planes are photographed and then treated in a way that blurs the line between being "real" and being a "model". Seen as a whole, the collection speaks of time, history, nostalgia, memory, courage and conflict.
