David Maisel is engaged in an ongoing
project that utilizes aerial photography of environmentally impacted
landscapes as a meditation on contemporary consciousness. His series
show the undoing of the natural world by the wide-scaled
intervention of human intervention in the landscape. The images of
these damaged wastelands, where our efforts have eradicated the
natural order, are both spectacular and horrifying. Although
Maisel’s photographs evidence the devastation before him, they also
transcribe an interior psychic landscape that is profoundly
disturbing. As otherworldly as the images appear, they depict
shattered realities of our own making. April 2004 marks the release
date of David’s monograph of The Lake Project, published by
the esteemed Nazraeli Press.
