A meticulous depiction of plane parts, rendered in the style of commercial photography
Combining the imagery of the aviation industry with a fresh take on the conventions of the photography medium, Aircraft: The New Anatomy dissects the components of aerial machinery in an exacting account of aircraft components and their aesthetics.French photographer Maxime Guyon's series is composed of digital photographs of large-scale aerospace subjects, executed in a specific style that replicates the visual codes of advertising photography. Combining the principle of form follows function and our post-industrial era as well as its aesthetic, this project reopens a visual discussion that Le Corbusier first introduced in 1935 in his publication Aircraft: The New Vision, to which this book alludes.
