Have you always flown for your work? I seriously got into flying about 12 years ago, when I did a story on the Sahara for National Geographic magazine. I wanted to go into northern Chad and Niger, but there really weren’t any aircraft available. I had to figure out how to do it myself, so I learned to fly a motorized paraglider. After that, you were hooked? I could get pictures of places where nobody had ever flown before and nobody had ever seen from above. So photography — not paragliding — was your first love? I’m a photographer who flies, not a pilot who takes pictures. How do people respond to the paraglider?

People are usually very curious — they’ve never seen one before. It sounds like people’s curiosity can be quite helpful in your work. Have you ever found yourself in a sticky situation with law enforcement in another country? It sounds like sometimes it doesn’t matter whether you have a permit or not. Has this been successful for you? Alex MacLean « New England Journal of Aesthetic Research.

Alex MacLean « New England Journal of Aesthetic Research

What from ground often seems like chaos is revealed from a bird’s-eye-view as ornate, fractal pattern, as if American civilization was in fact some great industrial Busby Berkeley number. In his show at the Clark Gallery in Lincoln, the images fall somewhere between tilt-shift aerial photography, which turns communities into cute toy landscapes, and Edward Burtynsky’s documents of industry, but with not so much of the environmental critique.

Instead MacLean, looking down from heights at which people look like ants, conveys a sense of people as social creatures creating elaborate, dense, wondrous colonies. Forêt - GoodPlanet. Bio. Best known f­or his exploration photography, George Steinmetz sets out to di­scover the­ ­few remaining secrets in our world today: remote deserts, obscure cultures, the ­mysteries of science and technology.


A regular contributor to National Geographic and GEO Magazines, he has explored subjects ranging from the remotest str­etches of Arabia's Empty Quarter to the­ unknown tree people of Irian Jaya. Since 1986, George has completed 31 major photo essays for National Geographic and 25 stories for GEO magazine in Germany. His expeditions to the Sahara and Gobi deserts have been featured in separate National Geographic Explorer programs. In 2006 he was awarded a grant by the National Science Foundation to document the work of scientists in the Dry Valleys and volcanos of Antarctica.

Aerial photography. Aerial photography should not be confused with Air-to-Air Photography, where one-or-more aircraft are used as Chase planes that "chase" and photograph other aircraft in flight.

MacLean (born 1947) is an American photographic artist who is best known for his aerial photographs. His photographs have portrayed the history and evolution of the land from vast agricultural patterns to city grids, recording changes brought about by human intervention and natural processes. MacLean graduated from Harvard College in 1969 with a Bachelor of Arts degree and earned a Master of Architecture degree from Harvard Graduate School of Design in 1973. [citation needed] He became interested in aerial scenery while he studied community planning and by 1975, MacLean received his commercial pilot license. Photographie aérienne.
