Aviation photographer Jean-christophe Dick will introduce a collection of his innovative work during the Flight Path Speaker Series on Saturday, November 12, at 10 a.m. at the LAX Flight Path Museum, 6661 W. Imperial Highway, Los Angeles. Admission and parking are free.
Dick, a licensed pilot, also has exhibited his photos at the Museum of Flying in Santa Monica, the Museum of Flight in Seattle, the Los Angeles Fine Arts Building and numerous other venues in Southern California and nationwide. He received a first place photography award for his collection at the 2016 Beverly Hills Art Show.
The Speaker Series program will open a week-long exhibit of Dick’s work at Flight Path, according to Lynne Adelman, the museum’s president. Public hours will be 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 12, and Tuesday through Friday, Nov. 15-19. Flight Path is closed on Sunday and Monday.
“Mr. Dick’s work reflects the beauty of today’s aircraft, the airports that serve them, and the open skies where they fly,” said Adelman. “He captures a spectacular drama of light and color in each of his photos.”
Following college graduation, Dick pursued flight training in Montreal and Santa Monica to qualify for his pilot certificate. Combining this skill with a lifelong love of his camera, he has traveled six continents to build a unique collection of aviation-related photographs. He also serves as a photographer and consultant to the HNTB Corp., a worldwide developer of airport improvement projects.
