Avi­a­tion, Poland-style

STAR­ING DOWN INTO THE COCK­PITS of a cou­ple of F-16s as they race across the Bel­gian coun­try­side is a reg­u­lar part of Pol­ish pho­tog­ra­pher Mar­iusz Adamski’s day job. These im­ages are from his book, Per As­pera Ad As­tra, pub­lished in 2013, which shows off his tal­ent at high-fly­ing por­traits. Adamski says he loves air-to-air pho­tog­ra­phy be­cause “the per­spec­tive is un­reach­able for most peo­ple. It’s an ex­pe­ri­ence that shows the beauty of flight.” Clock­wise from right: The Pol­ish air force’s Or­lik Aer­o­batic Team per­forms a loop; a cou­ple of M28 Bryzas pa­trol the Baltic Sea coast­line; the afore­men­tioned F-16s of the Bel­gian Air Com­po­nent; and the belly of a Brit­ten-nor­man BN-2 Is­lan­der as it flies over Alaska. More of Adamski’s work is at his web­site,
