Helsinki Airport is hosting an exhibition of fantastic images from US photographer Carolyn Russo for the next six months.

web_McDonnell F-4S copy_tif.jpgCarolyn Russo is a photographer and curator from the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum. Her shots will be exhibited in Arrivals Hall 2A at the Airport from October to April 2011.

Russo’s style is described as a ”unique approach that turns aviation technology into art”.

“Her closely cropped images of the shapes, structures, materials, colours and details of aircraft and spacecraft transform aviation technology and aircraft design into fascinating photographic art,” says the release from the airport.


The exhibition is organised by Finavia, the Aviation Writers of Finland, Finnair, Kameralehti magazine and Eirikuva.

The photos are, top, of a McDonnell Douglas F-4S Phantom.
