Overview

Flying the friendly skies, Brian Finke began a two year trip photographing flight attendants as he crisscrossed the globe on over a dozen different airlines. The result is Flight Attendants, vibrant document of those adventurous souls who choose to work at 40,000 feet. Shot before, during and after trips, at school and at home, Finke's photographs capture the allure of this highflying profession alongside the more quiet moments of the attendants' daily lives. As in his previous collection of cheerleaders and football players, 2-4-6-8, Finke is drawn to the distinctive dynamics of team formation, focusing on uniformed individuals executing practiced actions - whether on the playing field or in the air. With an eye for the iconic as well as the absurd, Finke seamlessly blends the glamorous with the casual, offering a memorable look at the men and women of air travel.
