Volume II of the aviation photographs of Charles E. Brown. From the cover: “The aeroplane photographs of Charles E. Brown must be considered as a major historic document. Having chosen his camera [Palmos] and learnt its eccentricities he was then able to achieve the remarkable degree of technical skill evident in the wonderfully clear images presented in this book. The surface textures of his subjects are so well captured by his ability, it seems that they are still real. He used his intuition wisely and took not only the staged and expected aeroplane portraits, but also managed to capture and transmit the real drama of space and light, intrinsic facets of the breathtaking world above the clouds.”
