    Photography is a great medium for capturing unique perspectives. For those of us who find ourselves earth bound most of the time, it’s refreshing to see the world from a vantage point we never get to experience on a regular basis.

    MacLean’s work helps us to understand our world in a way that can never happen when we’re stuck navigating through it in two dimensions.
