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.
