Up On The Roof
Pilot and photographer Alex MacLean has a deep body of aerial photography. His newest book Up On The Roof: New York’s Hidden Skyline Spaces. has recently been published and is available on Amazon. In this body of work MacLean photographs the secret or at least unseen private gardens attached to penthouses and other rooftop spaces shared by upper floors. It goes without saying that these opulent spaces are mostly accessed by the 1% who can actually afford a 50 million dollar penthouse apartment with swimming pools, gardens and tennis courts. Maclean’s work shows us these unseen spaces without editorializing.
