David Maisel

Wednesday, March 9, 2011

Would you believe I didn't take a single picture of the wedding on Saturday? I was too busy running around, setting up, organizing, and sending the bride down the aisle to even think about pictures. Looks like we'll all have to wait for the photographers pictures. But I promise it will be worth the wait- it was beautiful and everything fell into place. I can't wait to share it with you all.


In the meantime I'm mesmorized by the photography of of David Maisel. He shoots aerial images of environmentally impacted areas. The pictures below are of forrests, rivers, and mines. Amazing, right? I love this quote by the LA Times "Maisel's work over the past two decades has argued for an expanded definition of beauty, one that bypasses glamour to encompass the damaged, the transmuted, the decomposed."

  2. Wow, those are amazing. I love the quote too. I'm an environmental activist by trade with a love of "beautiful things" and it's rare that my two passions intersect so perfectly.
