For a period in the 1990s, John Schabel camped out on overpasses near New York airports, peering with a giant telephoto lens into the cabin windows of aircraft waiting, and waiting, for takeoff. “The psychological state of mind that I got into when I flew was always interesting to me,” said Schabel, who, from such a great distance, found small moments that air travelers will recognize with a voyeuristic thrill. His photos are finally collected in “Passengers.”
