David Maisel’s Mines

David Maisel’s aerial photographs of open mines questions ¬†how human activity transforms land through industrial effort. Although beautifully photographed these images are reminders of how we destroy and pollute our planet for money and power.

San Francisco-based photographer has a few different ongoing projects, but the one I like the best is the tentatively named “The Inhabited West.” The series consists of aerial photographs parts of the American landscape: “pursuing themes of mapping, vertigo, human impact on the land, geology, and various aspects of the sublime.” Some interesting points on how we’ve constructed our world around nature, and how the two interact.
