Alex Maclean is an aerial photographer who has explored virtually the entire continental United States, capturing humanity’s footprint on the natural world. Maclean’s images are shot at an altitude low enough that scenes and structures are identifiable, but high enough to render them abstract, revealing geometric patterns within beaches, islands, farmland, forests, and suburban sprawl. With an interest in environmental issues and a background in architecture and commercial planning, Maclean surveys American lifestyles and collective values based on housing patterns, commercial structures, and environmental interventions such as deforestation. His work combines art and information; a picture of a golf course in the desert, for example, functions as a symbol for access to resources both finite and infinite.
