Photographs by David Maisel, with a poem by Mark Strand and essay by William Fox.
Nazraeli Press, Portland, 2006. 48 pp., 15 black-and white illustrations, 12x12".
A palpable sense of dread runs through David Maisel's aerial photographs of Los Angeles in Oblivion, the sprawling geography of that megalopolis rendered as an impersonal circuit board, a coldly calculating machine. Following on the heels of his work with polluted lake beds in The Lake Project - some of which were created by Los Angeles' insatiable thirst for water - these images reinforce the social concerns of Maisel's work, with the physical features of the land standing as both literal maps and symbolic constructs.
