Whats Inside Private Jets
This year Brighton's international photography festival has been curated by
British photographer Martin Parr, and, rather than plump for well-known headline
names, he has decided to showcase the work of obscure or niche practicioners.
Among the most left-field on the shortlist is Nick Gleis, who photographs the
pimped up private jets that belong African dictators and other heads of state.

The Jetplanes Of The Super Rich
Thrones, gold seat buckles and a concert hall: Inside the gloriously opulent
private jets of the world's richest including a prince's 'flying palace' and
Trump's $100m plane
For most people, flying is a boring and uncomfortable experience. But in the
customized private jets that belong to the ultrarich the possibilities are
endless, and it's astounding to look at.
These incredible aircraft include cinemas, marble baths, aquariums, Rolls Royce
garages, glass floors, concert halls, wellbeing rooms, thrones, chef's kitchens
and gold seat buckles.
Each unique jet can be personally designed down to the tiniest luxurious detail
for work or play.
Photographer Nick Gleis specializes in picturing such planes. But many of the
owners wish to remain anonymous, so around 90 percent of Gleisís work is never
seen by the public.
Well-known names who feature in the photos below include Jackie Chan, Saudi
Prince Al-Waleed bin Talal and Donald Trump.
Chan's plush jet has his name and intertwining dragons emblazoned on the side.
Al-Waleed's has several planes and his 'flying palace' includes a concert hall
complete with a grand piano. And Donald Trump's chosen transport has 18
IMAX-level speakers in the cinema room.
