Time to Fly

The Young Gallery in Brussels is currently featuring photography from husband and wife team Daniel & Geo Fuchs. Their photo series titled "Giants" explores the toy-like presence of vintage military aircraft. A recent trip to the USS Intrepid proved to suggest this point of view--time has made this destructive machine seem like a movie set, filled with playfully painted aircraft whose bark seems worse than their bite.
