David Maisel Black Maps
Monday, February 3, 2014
In conjunction with the Whatcom Museum’s exhibition Vanishing Ice, the
Western Gallery will present a survey of David Maisel’s major aerial
photography projects. In these large-scaled photographs, Black Maps
leads the viewer on a hallucinatory journey through terrains that have
been radically altered by environmental issues and transformed by human
agency. Maisel’s aerial images of environmentally impacted zones frame
the issues of contemporary landscape with equal measures of
documentation and metaphor, beauty and despair.
