Millon, Henry A.
SCOPE AND CONTENT
The Aronson photographic collection of aerial views of Rome comes from a portfolio of 300 hundred aerial photographs of buildings, monuments, archaeological ruins, and other well known, and lesser known sites in Rome. The photographs were taken by J.H. Aronson and H.A. Millon during two helicopter flights in May, 1977.
The goal was to provide high quality images of Rome, as few were available at the time. Of the thousands photographs Aronson and Millon took during the two flights, only 300 of the clearest images were selected for the publication of the Portfolio. Aronson published the Portfolio in 1979 through his company, Aerpicfoto, which was at the time located in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
