Travelling, African dictator style

As there is so much excellent work at the Brighton Photo Biennial this year, I’m going to put up a series of blog posts looking at some of the shows in more depth. First up is a series of photographs by Nick Gleis which reveal the interior opulence of the private jets owned by African dictators in the 1960s and 70s.

As there is so much excellent work at the Brighton Photo Biennial this year, I’m going to put up a series of blog posts looking at some of the shows in more depth. First up is a series of photographs by Nick Gleis which reveal the interior opulence of the private jets owned by African dictators in the 1960s and 70s.

 

The photos, which belong to the Archive of Modern Conflict, are on show as part of an installation of vernacular photography at Fabrica art gallery in Brighton. Gleis has declined to reveal who’s jet these photos are taken in (I’m guessing they are all from the same one but perhaps it is two different planes), and the interior designer is also unknown, but the images all scream 70s glamour at its most extreme.

Visit Fabrica before November 28 to see more from the series. More info on the Brighton Photo Biennial can be found at bpb.org.uk.
