Cabinet Magazine publishes Maisel’s American Mine portfolio in Issue 50, Summer 2013,  with writer Geoff Manaugh’s essay Infinite Exchange.

“Vast terraced bowls step down—and down and, impossibly, further down—tracking dead faults and mineralization fronts on a scale only made clear when we notice 16-ton trucks like specks of dust on canyon walls. Discolored oceans of chemical runoff wash across vehicle tracks with acid tides. Retaining walls and stabilized slopes loom over assembled superscapes of mine detritus, abandoned shells of industrial insects dwarfed by the world they’ve helped create…These mines grow in great metastasizing voids, like storm fronts of negative space exploding with slow thunder into the planet.”
