What else do pilots do when they’re flying a plane, other than concentrate on not crashing? Why? Take photographs of course! I found these photographs by Alex McClean who is a photographer and qualified pilot when I was just browsing the internet looking for some interesting photographs that I hadn’t seen before. I found them on this website: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/04/11/alex-maclean_n_5126883.html?ncid=txtlnkusaolp00000592 I really like these photographs because they make us think about just what pilots see when they’re flying. Obviously, they need to concentrate on flying the plane safely but they have time to look out of the window, or in his case, stick his camera out of the cockpit window and press the shutter button. These photographs look almost unreal and like constructed photographs because of the order and structure that they contain but they were just what he could see.
These photographs, as far I could find out, have never been shown in any exhibitions and have only been published online. However, if they were to be exhibited I would imagine that they would be very large prints because of the patterns and dimension within each photograph.
