Review of solo exhibit at the Schneider Gallery; June 13, 2003. Artner, Alan.
“One of last year’s most unforgettable phototgraphy books was a collection of aerial photographs by Emmet Gowin. Each of the pictures was of land damaged by various forms of pollution, and they were all as painful as if they had been studies of beaten or scarred bodies. David Maisel, one of Gowin’s students who has an exhibition at the Schneider Gallery, also has taken aerial photographs of a polluted lake in California. But where Gowin’s toned images evoked pain, Maisel’ s color pictures create an entirely different sensation, one that is cooler and has the formal beauty of painted abstraction.”
