William Laven... F14 Tomcat (2005, Carbon-based pigment print produced on Hahnemuhle paper. Edition of 5). From War Models. "...War Models is a series by Bay Area photographer William Laven. Here he presents large scale photographs of unassembled model airplane kits of aircraft flown in the current Iraqi war. These black and white prints touch on the American fascination with symbols of power. Forty aircraft types have been flown in Operation Iraqi Freedom. This includes 30 types of airplanes - fighters, troop transporters, aerial tankers, and reconnaissance planes - eight types of helicopters and two kinds of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV), one armed with missiles, the other with cameras. Of the forty aircraft flown, model kits are made of twenty one."
