alex maclean's arial photography

Arial photography has always had a special place in my heart. There's just something about the physical separation from the objects pictured that allows you to see so much more, both physically and mentally. When you're sitting at a stoplight surrounded by ten other cars you probably don't think very much about them at all, but seen from above you start to remember just how many people there are in the world and how you're surrounded by so many other people going about their lives all the time. On the ground it seems chaotic, but from above it almost seems choreographed.

Alex MacLean's photographs go beyond just giving the viewer a new perspective. The way he frames and crops his images create almost abstract geometric arrangements. Along with interesting color palates, patterns begin to emerge that you would never think exist on the ground.

I highly recommend checking out his other pieces, specifically his series on beaches and abandonment.
