Aerial Photographer Captures Our Undying Love for Playgrounds
Guess you could say there's a bunch of concrete... playgrounds... out there.
Pilot and architect by trade, Massachusetts-based photographer Alex S. MacLean knows a thing or two about perspective. Taking a bird's eye view of theme parks, tennis courts, playgrounds and waterslides in the US, MacLean's latest series Playing is a playful reminder of the surrealist, hedonist nature of leisure time.
Water parks, tennis courts, putt putt courses, basketball courts, public pools — we've gotten pretty good at adapting to climate, taking advantage of natural geographical perks and building the ultimate escapist fun houses for our selves. MacLean explores about the dynamic relationship the constructed American landscape and the idea of play — we continue to build playgrounds well after our playdates have turned to wine dates.
So, taking cues from MacLean and his whole Playing collection, I guess you could say there's a bunch of concrete... playgrounds... out there. Yeeeop. Concrete. Playgrounds...
