National Museum of the Marine Corps Presents In Plane View

Elegance of Aircraft Design Featured in Traveling Smithsonian Photography Exhibition

“In Plane View,” an exhibition of 56 large-format photographs by Carolyn Russo showcasing the aesthetic quality of some of the National Air and Space Museum’s iconic aircraft, will be on display October 15, 2010 through January 13, 2011 at the National Museum of the Marine Corps.

With close-up facets, sculptural forms and life-like elements, “In Plane View” directs viewers’ attention to the often-overlooked simple elegance of aircraft design. Russo exposes the bold colors, textures, shapes and patterns that characterize diverse flying machines and, with her lens, transforms technology into art.
