Original Photo of Flight 1549 by Stephen MallonPhotoshopped Version of Flight 1549 Photo by Stephen Mallon

This weekend, Stephen Mallon opens an exhibition of his censored and Photoshopped images documenting the salvage of US Airways Flight 1549. “Brace for Impact” features photos the industrial photographer shot as the bird-struck plane was dredged from the icy Hudson River and carted through New Jersey earlier this year. But the photos nor the gallery’s press release, don’t say everything. The aircraft’s U.S. Airways logos have been digitally erased in a series of retractions and edits requested by the National Transportation Safety Board, the airline and its insurer AIG. The show opens from 7 to 10 PM on September 12th at 147 Roebling Street in Williamsburg.
