Air travel once was a matter of luxury. Back then considered a miracle, commercial aviation is regarded to be as usual as taking a bus. Nowadays, it is a part of our routine, which constantly reveals itself in new faces. It joins up space and time, in which the advertising image crashes into reality. Easiness meets the fatigue, comfort meets stress, luxury meets tawdriness, dreams hit into material reality and the feeling of safety is overtaken by that of vulnerability and discontent.
While travelling within Europe and to / from other continents I started to admire the daily life of the commercial aviation, seen from the perspective of a passenger. The imaginary rest and work of my air travel was complemented with taking pictures. The reason why, would probably be a feeling that when air-travelling we pass to a different and isolated world, the dwellers of which to comfort themselves would say “I fly, therefore I am”
The “travel'AIR” project is a vision of the life around commercial aviation: airports, aircrafts, passengers, flights, waiting, connections, arrivals and departures, baggage, rest, fatigue etc, seen from a passenger's perspective. Commercial aviation is a theme that allows to grasp the pulse of the globalized world.
