About the artwork

Planes from all over the world end their days in the Mojave Desert in California. Boeings and army planes, but also very old aircraft await their fate in the middle of nowhere in the blazing sun. An aesthete of past eras, Lavielle only photographs old models which have become collector's items. Connoisseurs will recognise the DC-3s used to fight against Nazi Germany and the Fouga Magisters from the Patrouille de France. Black and white sublimates the lines of the aircraft. Whilst light reflects upon the cabin and the wings, one cannot help but think about ?L?Albatros? by Baudelaire pathetically letting their great white wings trail beside them.
