“Danger Zones” January 2008. Gambino, Megan.
“David Maisel doesn’t consider himself an environmental activist. Yet his large-scale aerial photographs of strip mines, a bone-dry lake bed and manmade evaporation ponds can be viewed as indictments of our indifference to the planet that sustains us. Once you figure them out , that is. The photographs call to mind everything from blood vessels to stained-glass windows. “They might be mirrors into who we are as a society and who we arc in our psyches,” Maisel says.”
