In Landing Lights Park, David Rothenberg focuses on the neighbourhood that lies beneath the whining roar and shadows of inbound jetliners landing at New York’s LaGuardia Airport in Queens. Rothenberg’s photographs explore this extraordinary intrusion within a landscape of the ordinary.
Landing Lights Park offers a sequence of disorienting photographic collisions. Neighbourhood details and intruding airplanes are interspersed with portraits of passengers in midair as they gaze out their windows moments before landing, taken from the ground with a telephoto lens. Includes short essays by Gideon Jacobs.
