Over the past years, Leon Dimitrios has explored the world’s busiest airports, such as Chicago O’Hare (ORD), Los Angeles (LAX), London Heathrow (LHR), Tokyo Haneda (HND), and even some exceptional airports, like Rio’s Santos du Mont (SDU) close to Sugarloaf; or Innsbruck (INN), located at the foot of the 6,000-foot-high Austrian Alps. Learn how pilots manage severe conditions in Bolivian capital of La Paz (LPB), at an altitude of 13,300 feet above sea level, or Longyearbyen (LYR) during harsh winter conditions above 78° latitude.
More than anything, Leon preserved the images of the world before the basic trust was gone, and along the way, he attempted to absorb as much as he could from the environments through which he was passing. It is not just airport architecture that interests him, but also travelers and the people who work there. He has interviewed airline professionals, pilots, crew members, air traffic controllers, and other staff who share a love for their jobs. Not only have these conversations generated knowledge, better understanding, and enjoyment, but some have also resulted in lasting friendships.
