Gallery Artist Josef Hoflehner Article On Jet Airliner Series

"Only a small fence separates Runway 10 at the Princess Juliana International Airport from Maho Beach. Due to the short runway length, planes have to fly over the beach at low altitudes as they prepare to land.

The Hoflehners shot the “Jet Airliner” series on a 6x6 Hasselblad SWC, which made capturing the planes that were traveling at roughly 200 miles per hour a difficult task.

'Unlike a modern DSLR, which can take numerous images of one plane arriving, we only had one shot per landing, but we loved the challenge!” said Josef. “It’s pretty difficult since most people on the beach are in constant movement and you have to walk or run with them if you want them in the image'".
