My great-aunt was a stewardess in the 1960s when air travel was super glamorous. Not surprisingly, she was blonde, British and had great legs. Nowadays, flight attendants are less glamorous and sexually harrassed, but it remains a very intriguing lifestyle. Photographer Brian Finke has photographed flight attendants around the world, and I like the odd antiseptic quality of his photos. Finke is currently exhibiting at New York's ClampArt; the gallery opening is tonight from 6-8. Hope to see some of you there?
P.S. Brian Finke has also done cool photo series of cheerleaders, football players, bodybuilders and frat boys.
P.S. I love that line from The Flight of the Concords: "You are so beautiful, you could be an air hostess in the 60s."
