Michael Massaia’s Models of Planes at the Moment that Everything Goes Wrong

“Borrowed time is an exploration into the moment the point of no return has been reached and the subsequent freedom that follows. Using the visual of midflight plane failures was my attempt to show the moment that horror, relief, freedom, and graphic beauty all meet at once.”

“Because there are very few images/actual references of planes when they have these types of engine malfunctions mid-flight, I had to replicate/make as visual correct as possible what occurs when these types of catastrophic malfunctions occur.”

This series from Michael Massaia, entitled “Borrowed Time – Mid Flight Engine Failure”, is made without Photoshop or digital composites. The ones where the planes are actually flying upwards are particularly interesting, as if, though on fire, they have no intention of going down. See more after the jump. Read More >

Next Day Flyer Presents: Seeing The Black Dog

 

Michael Massaia’s haunting new series Seeing The Black Dog is based on a saying truck drivers use to describe hallucinations that occur as a result of sleep deprivation during cross country runs.  When they see the “black dogs” scampering across the highway they know to pull over and get some sleep.   The moment they make that decision is when Michael sneeks up to their trucks while they’re in the cabs sleeping and captures the moment the dogs melt away (it’s also the moment Michael tries not to get his ass shot off).  All of the images were taken between the hours of 2am and 6am along the New Jersey Turnpike.
