BACKGROUND INFORMATION
The Flying Eye

Alex S. MacLean’s (*1947) pictures have something healing about them. They bring to order to what seems at ground level chaotic. The photographer has seen nearly all of the US and Europe from above and shows us the structures of Western lifestyle, told as an overview of growth and decay, of planting and harvesting, of our need to be motorized and on the move and how such a course ends. The abstract concept of spatial order makes sense with the advantage of a bird’s-eye view. MacLean reveals the difference between the natural and the constructed aspects of the environment and most recently took photos of aspects of climate change, taking us with each image to a place we think we know but have never seen like this.

MacLean is a trained architect whose excellent sense of space also qualifies him beyond that field, particularly in landscape architecture. Over the last years he has published numerous collections of photos; his works have been shown across the US, including at the AIPAD Show Miami, as well as extensively at the Arles photo festival. He keeps a studio in Cambridge and lives in Lincoln, Massachusetts.
