Josef Hoflehner's Jet Liner

Imagine you're on the beach with friends and the a 747 thunders so close overhead that you can almost touch it. Just another day in paradise, right? Josef Hoflehner's beautiful new book Jet Liner is a collection of dreamy images taken on location at the Princess Juliana Airport in St. Maarten, Dutch West Indies, which, if you haven't figured out by now, is on the beach. While the surreal photos have stunning black-and-white contrasts, it's the juxtaposition of paradise and modern industrialism that make the images snap with a gorgeous absurdity.
