Do you ever wonder what it’s like to spend most of your day in the air and visit more than one country per day? Or more over, to travel to a country for just a few hours each time and eat plane food as your packed lunch?
We were lucky enough to gain insight into the behind the scenes of an Air Malta flight
and receive some awesome photos taken by one of Air Malta’s very own air hostesses, Lindsey Cauchi. Lindsey spent a summer working with us and on her last flight to Zurich
decided to cleverly capture and document her great experience.
Not only did the air hostess snap some great shots, but she also paid tribute to the history of photography. Instead of taking out her smart phone and instagramming some photos, as most of us would do, Lindsey turned to analogue photography and used a manual camera to allow viewers to relive a non-digital experience. Her aim was to help viewers appreciate the beauty of manual film photography which takes a lot more time and effort than digital photography. Nowadays manual film photography is not as common as it used to be and digital filers just can't quite replicate a true analogue photo.
"I feel honored that I had the chance to be Cabin Crew for our national airline whilst promoting a country like no other, Malta. Capturing this experience in film was an opportunity to treasure and I am overwhelmed that I get to share the outcome with all Air Malta's followers."– Lindsey
