What words would a poet use to describe what the eye sees and the soul surmises, haunting, terrifying, supernatural all these words would not be enough to describe the photographs of this promising American photographer, no actually I would like to use the word visual artist here. Making the dead soul of a lake come to life in a picture is only half the work, perceiving the tremendous changes wrought by nature on man and by ignorant man on silent nature is the other half. Are these expressions the work of renaissance photography? I believe so!
Go to the photographer’s website and see the new book and discover the visual progress made by this visual artist, his sixth book was published this year and you know that the Eye led the Soul.
The writer T.S. Elliot (1888-1965) once wrote; “human kind cannot bear much reality”. In David Maisel’s work, we find reality and more in a world removed and yet so close. Man cannot exist without nature but nature can without men.
