Josef Hoflehner began his Jet Airliner series in early 2009. Captioned “Air France Airbus A340-300, arriving from Paris-Charles de Gaulle,” this photograph from 2011 was captured in a wide-angle format as a plane roared over a beach on its way to land. The scene is completely unstaged, making this moment all the more extraordinary.
“Jet Airliner #44″ is part of a group exhibition at Bonni Benrubi Gallery in New York that runs until September 10.

Between 100,000 and 150,000 newcomers arrive in Greece every year and according to Frontex 75% of migrants entering Europe come through Greece. To continue the journey through Europe, migrants have to reach Patras, a harbour on the West coast of Greece which can turn out to be a window towards Italy. Hundreds of migrants are still here, some of them for 2 years, in the hope of reaching Italy illegally. In Patras the living conditions are extremely difficult for most sleep in the streets and parks near the harbor. On a daily basis they are trying to enter the harbor by jumping on a ferry going to Italy, or riding directly under the axle of a truck departing on the same ferry. Everyday ferries, from Italy to Patras, disembark migrants who get caught after spending 48hours in the ferry lying under a truck, without food or water. Patras is the dead end of the European migration policy.- Depardon.

Sturgis, a prairie town on the westernmost edge of South Dakota, claims only 6,000 permanent residents… The town swells to nearly a half million for the first week of August every summer during the famous motorcycle rally. At the end of the 2008 rally, 66 marriage licenses had been issued, 3 rally-related deaths occurred, millions of t-shirts had been sold, the South Dakota economy claimed $10.5 million in rally-related sales, and 543 tons of garbage were hauled away. These are just a few faces of another Sturgis Motorcycle Rally in America’s heartland. To see more of Reed Young’s work click here.
