Alex S. MacLean's piloting background allows him to take some of the most stunning aerial photography shots the art world has had the pleasure to see. In his latest series, MacLean captures various American parks, playgrounds and sport sessions from a visually refreshing bird's eye view.

While MacLean's shots are relatively simple, they invite the viewer to gaze at everyday situations from an unconventional perspective. MacLean captures the playful and joyful side to American leisure as he photographs stills of colorful playgrounds, mini golf places, public swimming pools and theme parks while flying over them. These technicolor compositions offer a look into how modern day Americans relax and blow off steam in their bustling day-to-day lifestyles.
