Check out this week’s vintage DB: Air Force Major Brandon Lingle’s aptly titled “The Boneyard” is a series of photographs you don’t want to miss. Back in January 2010, Brandon’s haunting black and white photography of the hollow shells of abandoned aircraft made the cut for our 11th issue, and today is featured on our blog as a beautiful example of the kind of work that makes Drunken Boat the amazing and diverse publication that it is.
Brandon Lingle’s writing and photography appears in The New York Times, Guernica, TIME, The North American Review, The Atlantic, Narrative, The Rumpus, Zone 3, Southeast Review, Epiphany, Evergreen Review, and others. His essays are notables in The Best American Essays 2010, 2013, and 2015. He taught in the U.S. Air Force Academy’s English Department and serves as Art Director and Nonfiction Editor of War, Literature & the Arts: An International Journal of the Humanities. He’s currently studying nonfiction in Sierra Nevada College’s MFA program. If you’d like to learn more about Lingle, you can visit his website.
