Pilot and photographer Alex MacLean has flown his plane over much of the United States documenting the landscape. Trained as an architect, he has portrayed the history and evolution of the land 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.

China: The

Wu Family

The nine members of this extended family—father

Wu Ba Jiu (59), mother Guo Yu Xian (57), their sons, daughters-in-law, and

three grandchildren—live in a three-bedroom, 600-square-foot dwelling in rural Yunnan Province. While they have no telephone, they get news and

images of a wider world through two radios and the family's most prized possession, a television. In the future, they hope to get one with a 30-inch screen as well as a VCR, a refrigerator, and drugs to combat diseases in the carp they raise in their ponds. Not included in the photo are their 100 mandarin trees, vegetable patch, and three pigs.

India: The At age

Yadev Family

25, Mashre Yadev is already mother to four children, the oldest of whom was born when she was 17. Each morning at their home in rural Uttar

Pradesh, she draws water from a well so that her older children can wash before school. She cooks over a wood fire in a windowless, six-by-nine-foot kitchen, and such

Bachau, 32

labor-intensive domestic work keeps her busy from dawn to dusk. Her husband , works roughly 56 hours a week, when he can find work. In rough times, family members have gone more than two weeks with little food. Everything they own—including two beds, three bags of rice, a broken bicycle, and their most cherished belonging, a print of Hindu gods—appears in this photograph.

Japan: The

Ukita Family

43-year-old Sayo Ukita

Like many Japanese women, had children relatively late in life. Her youngest daughter is now in kindergarten, not yet burdened by the pressures of exams and Saturday "cram school" that face her nine-year-old sister. Sayo is supremely well-organized, which helps her manage the busy schedules of her children and maintain order in their 1,421-square-foot Tokyo home stuffed with clothes, appliances, and an abundance of toys for both her daughters and dog. She and her husband

Kazuo, 45, have all the electronic and gas-powered conveniences of modern life, but their most cherished possessions are a ring and heirloom pottery. The family's wish for the future: a larger house with more storage space.

son of Sangay Kandu and Sangay), Kinley Dorji, (61, unmarried brother of Nalim). Nalim and her daughter Sangay work as partners—they take turns caring for the

children and working in their mustard, rice, and wheat fields. Sangay’s husband Sangay Kandu does the plowing of the family fields but Sangay and Nalim do the planting and harvesting. Namgay, who has a hunched back and a clubfoot, grinds grain for neighbors with a small mill his family purchased from the government. They are paying for the mill as they can—often the payment is made in grain and mustard oil. Namgay is also a reader of sacred texts and conducts house cleansing and healing ceremonies for their 14house village.

Mali: The

Natomo Family

It is not unusual in this West African country for men to have two wives, as 39-year-old chance you will be supported in old age. Soumana now has eight

Soumana Natomo does. More wives mean more progeny—and a greater

children, and his wives, Pama Kondo (28) and Fatouma Niangani Toure

(26), will likely have more. How many of these children will survive, though, is uncertain: Mali's infant mortality rate ranks among the ten highest in the world. Some of the

family's possessions are not included in this photo—another mortar and pestle for pounding grain, two wooden mattress platforms, 30 mango trees, and old radio batteries that the children use as toys. (Note: The Natomos appear on the adobe roof of their house in Kouakourou. An infant son is nestled in his mother's arms. One daughter is absent.)

United States: The

Skeen Family

Pearland, Pearland, Texas, a suburb of Houston. The fire hydrant in this photo is real, but not working—a souvenir from Rick's days as a firefighter. Rick, 36, now splices cables for a phone company. Pattie, 34, teaches school at a Christian academy. To get Rick and Pattie Skeen's 1,600-square-foot house lies on a cul-de-sac in

the picture, photographers hoisted the family up in a cherry picker. Yet the image still leaves out a refrigerator-freezer, camcorder, woodworking tools, computer, glass butterfly collection, trampoline, fishing equipment, and the rifles Rick uses for deer hunting, among other things. Though rich with possessions, nothing is as important to the Skeens as their Bible. For this devoutly Baptist family, like many families around the world, it is a spiritual—rather than material—life that matters most.

Kazuo Ukita relaxes in an ofuro—a Japanese bath that is meant for relaxation rather

than washing. The water is generally kept in the tub and warmed before each use. Family members wash squatting on a stool with a bucket of hot water and a shower

hose before entering the bath. When not in use the bath is covered with an insulated cover (seen behind Kazuo Ukita’s head.) Japan.

Sayo Ukia (back to camera) shops for fruits and vegetables in the Kodaira City

neighborhood, outside Tokyo, Japan, where she and her family live. Because Sayo Ukita buys her family’s food from the nearby neighborhood

markets situated around the train station (true for many residential areas in Tokyo) she usually shops daily; and by bicycle (the area is congested and there is little parking for cars). From coverage of revisit to Material World Project family in Japan, 2001. From coverage of revisit to Material World Project family in Japan, 2001. {{Sayo Ukita and her

husband Kazuo continue to live in the manicured suburb of northwest Tokyo called Kodaira City. Their daughter Mio is a first year university student, concentrating on biology (her first field experience, in May, was milking a cow). Daughter Maya, 14, attends 8th grade and still plays the piano. Neither girl swims competitively any longer. The family has replaced a great deal of their belongings since the original big picture was taken, hence the large number of items in the Material World 2001 big picture. Their dog Izumaru has died, but they did not replace him. Mio has a new laptop for school, and both girls have mobile phones. The Nintendo game player is still hooked up to the family’s extra television set in the dining room, but it is not used as often as it had been when the girls were younger. The parents have a television in their bedroom that Kazuo watched when he was bedridden with a back ailment and a problem with his pancreas, and he has a massage chair set up in the corner of the living room though it isn’t used much since his injuries have healed. The Ukita’s have a new car, but Kazuo continues to take the train to work, and Sayo rides her bicycle to the market every day—a three minute ride—to buy her family’s food.
