"Ports and Airports" is a compilation of 100 vertical aerial photographs of British docks and airports, taken from the "Millennium Map". The "Millennium Map" consists of vertical photographs of the whole of the United Kingdom from an average height of 5500 feet, recording every object right down to a minimum size of 25cm. Heathrow, the world's busiest passenger airport; St Mary's on the Scilly Isles, perhaps Britain's most exotic holiday destination; Duxford in Cambridgeshire, site of the RAF museum; St Ives, popular Cornish cultural centre and working fishing village; Dover, white cliffs and ferries to France; Skegness, Lincolnshire's famously bracing resort; Wells-next-the-Sea in Norfolk, no longer quite next to the sea due to shifting sands; Milford Haven, Pembrokeshire container port; Stranraer, Ayrshire gateway to Northern Ireland - this volume should bring a surprising new angle to places such as these.
