Alex Maclean

Born in 1947 - United States


Alex MacLean was born in Seattle, Washington on 8 January 1947 and spent his childhood growing up on an eleven acre hobby farm', just outside Washington DC.

Alex Maclean went on to gain a Masters degree in architecture from Harvard and graduated in 1973. As part of the course he regularly undertook field research, using his camera as the main source for gathering information. When he was offered the chance to research from the air, MacLean discovered it gave him the best view for site analysis and two years after graduating, in 1975, went on to acquire his pilot licence.

This helped him fulfil his ambition to photograph our rapidly changing environment and document our impact on the landscapes below. That same year MacLean founded his company, Landslides, specialising in aerial photography for architects, designers, planners and environmentalists. MacLean has gone on to amass an archive of over 350,000 images of streetscapes, parks, gardens, campuses, plazas, mining and extraction pits and urban design developments across parts of America and Europe.
