20th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Drone/Aerial
The 'Moth' Flies Again.

Having been fortunate enough to spend my early years around aircraft in the U.K., I have always had the urge to utilise my photographic practice to document the beauty and complexity of them - doing so in unusual ways if possible. Upon discovering the 'Tiger Moth' biplane at my local airfield had just been restored after more than a decade of work, I jumped at the opportunity to photograph not only its uniqueness, but also the effort and dedication that a small restoration team put into the project for so many years, with the choice of colour-scheme accurately representing that of its historical reference - making it a one of a kind.
