Up In The Air

These aerial photographs were taken by pilot & photographer Alex MacLean, a former architecture student at Harvard University's Graduate School of Design.  While enrolled at Harvard MacLean took a course on community planning, exposing him to urban geography and the unique point of view one has of it from the sky.  Fascinated by the American landscape, and the physical consequences & influences of human intervention within nature, he got his commercial pilot's license and began shooting out of the window of a plane.  In his photographs we get to see some of the mesmerizing patterns of our world, imperceptible from where we stand.  Comforting and careful constellations of our impressions on the planet.
