Trained as an architect...Alex Maclean...has portrayed the history and evolution of the land...in the United States...from vast agricultural patterns to city grids, recording changes brought about by human intervention and natural processes. His powerful and descriptive images provide clues to understanding the relationship between the natural and constructed environments. MacLean's photographs have been exhibited widely in the United States, Canada, Europe and Asia and are found in private, public and university collections.*

I've long believed that everyone in the world has taken at least one or two excellent photographs. If you've taken a photograph that you especially like, from an airplane in flight, email it to me at email@example.com, and I'll try toinclude it (with your name) in a future OEN article.
