Veteran photographer Nicholas Price spent 18 months with the U.S. Air Force men and women in an attempt to capture on film the strength and courage of American service members. Price,was granted unprecedented access to take over 8,000 photographs and cull from that collection the 60 black-and-white photographs, which mark the 60th Anniversary of the USAF and which have been obtained by the Library of Congress, in order to fill an important gap in the Library’s visual collections related to the history of military aviation.
"Cleared Hot!" is a U.S. Air Force command used to approve an action -- typically, the release or drop of weapons.
- For the first time ever, selected photographs from this collection are available in a single or limited editions of each photo.
- In collaboration with art dealer Grace Windsor, we are very proud to offer this collection to our global collectors.
- Each photograph comes numbered and signed on the back, is hand-printed by Nicholas Price and presented in an archival packaging.

- General (Retired) John P. Jumper, Chief Of Staff for the U.S. Airforce

"Training for deployment, this young airman's brilliant smile was captured on film as she turned and caught my lens. The irony of her spirit, her warmth and laughter was such a contrast on this very serious day when all these young men and women would be heading into a real war in just a few weeks. I never did find her again even after the project was completed and the final collection went on tour. Her image is one of a few from this project that still haunts me today, because I don't know more than what I captured on film that very day" - Nicholas A Price, 2008
