Aerial photographer Alex MacLean turns his camera on the colorful, exhilarating world of America at play. From the beauty of perfectly symmetric sports stadiums to the spaghetti-like tangles of theme parks to sunbathers on a stretch of splendid beach, he illuminates how we inhabit the land and the potential for modern planning to create spectacular environments.
