Artist of the moment……Photographer David Maisel

 

 

David Maisel is an American photographer renown for his aerial shots of the American landscape taken from an airplane. David Maisel was born in New York City in the year 1961.

In this brief clip we view some wonderful aerial shots of mines taken by Maisel. I enjoy the abstract quality of these works.:

Maisel received a great collegiate education first earning a B.F.A.  from Princeton University. He went on to graduate studies first at Harvard before earning a M.F.A. from the California College of the Arts.

In this clip David Maisel talks about shooting imagery that dealt with death.:

The artist is based out of Sausalito, California.

Maisel is a wonderful photographer who seeks out very abstract images that visual delights in color and texture.

    The motives of these photographs are quite beautiful but some of the pictures also show destruction. Some of them are, I think, instances of what I have been describing as the dark side of beauty, see http://asifoscope.org/2013/10/31/the-dark-side-of-beauty/
