Inside the private planes of dictators. No sharks with freaking laser beams.
Showing at this year’s international photography festival in Brighton is Nick Gleis’ collection of photographs of the rarely seen inside of private jets belonging to VIPs.
Gleis, who describes his images as “extremely security-sensitive” has photographed the private jets for heads of state of African countries, including Cameroon, and also China. However, due to the private contractual nature of his photography, he will not disclose for the exhibition which aircraft belongs to which client.
I submit this as exhibit A in the case of Money and Power vs Class and Taste.
