Website WeJetSet, has a small gallery showcasing some of Jeffrey Milstein's photography of various black boxes, a device normally associated with death and tragedy, but that he's trying to portray as also something of beauty and importance.

Jeffrey Milstein's photography finds a way to put the flight recorder front-and-centre among our fears, curiosities and fascinations. His imagery shows the object's durability which unlocks its beautiful purpose to provide information that could be used to prevent a tragedy from happening in the future.

Flight recorders are actually insanely fascinating and their history, purpose and importance are often taken for granted.
