Alex Mac Lean, a pilot and photographer based in Lincoln, Massachusetts, captures the many different personalities of beaches. Whether private or public, rocky or sandy, the landscape is very mesmerizing. The beach chair layouts on resort beaches are reminiscent of manicured French gardens whereas public spaces are more organic and haphazard, which sometimes embraces the shape of the land itself.
Appropriately titled 'Beaches,' Alex Mac Lean's aerial portfolio will have people wishing for the summer season to arrive now. The suntanning images might be a tease, but it is a welcome and artistic one. Of course, what makes these captures extra special are not the people, but the slew of colorful umbrellas and beach chairs that litter the sand like toys.
