Walking around New York you can feel intimidated and a bit overwhelmed because of the numerous skyscrapers. By lifting your head up, you can’t tell where these buildings end. Immersed in a everyday rush, we do not realize that in the hidden spaces, high above us, life slows down. Pilot and photographer Alex MacLean shows us this reality in the book “Up on the Roof: New York’s Hidden Skyline Spaces”. We can see his amazing photos of pools, gardens, tennis courts, graffiti and restaurants. Everything on the roofs of New York buildings, MacLean reveals to us the world available sometimes only for the richest. It shows New York from a completely different perspective. You can find more photos and publications of the photographer here.
