powerHouse books, publisher of forward thinking art books, is hosting a reception tonight for their new release, Flight Attendants, at their newest venture, the powerHouse library. The powerHouse library is located in the beautiful Mansion New York and features “a selection of powerHouse Books’ latest releases and classic backlist titles, the Library will host an exclusive series of launch parties and private receptions in conjunction with art shows in the gallery.” Exciting!
Flight Attendants is a book of photographs taken by Brian Finke on his many travels. The catalog is “a vibrant document of those adventurous souls who choose to work at 40,000 feet. Shot before, during, and after trips, at school and at home, Finke’s photographs capture the allure of this high-flying profession alongside the more quiet moments of the attendants’ daily lives.” You can see more images from the book after the jump and you can purchase the book online here.
