THE DAMAGE DONE
Aerial Photography Documenting Environmentally Impacted Sites
David Maisel [via Of the Afternoon]
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.
REPRINTED from Of the Afternoon [Of The Afternoon is based in Manchester, UK and publishes contemporary photography both online and in print.] Black Maps: American Landscape and the Apocalyptic Sublime [Amazon] is a David Maisel retrospective collection.
