David Maisel – Photography

I bumped into the work of David Maisel thanks to the exhibition called Subverted, in the Ivorypress art gallery in Madrid (until 14th April). Wonderful big photographs, many of them related to cartography and map making.

David Maisel. Terminal Mirage 5

In David Maisel’s website can be read: “Maisel’s aerial images of environmentally impacted sites explore the aesthetics and politics of open pit mines, clear-cut forests, and zones of water reclamation, framing the issues of contemporary landscape with equal measures of documentation and metaphor.”

Don’t miss The Mining Project (1987- 2007), Oblivion (2004 – 2006), Terminal Mirage (2003 – 2005), The Lake Project (2001 – 2002), The Forest (1985 – 1986) and Mount Saint Helens (1983 – 1984).
