BEETLES + HUXLEY GALLERY
March 3 - 29, 2014
"An artist with a unique perspective - Alex MacLean takes us out of the streets and into the skies, reducing humanity down to the size of a model. A fully licensed pilot, MacLean uses his highly efficient Cessna 182 carbon fibre aeroplane to explore the world recording landscapes, architecture and human behaviour from a bird's eye view. The resulting photographs are thought provoking, yet beautiful, an investigation into humanity's footprint on the natural world. Farming patterns, coastal resorts, military sites and bizarre housing developments are just some of the poignant scenes featured in MacLean's first ever London show."
