David Maisel: The Lake Project

LP15_MAISEL1-700x700

Visual artist David Maisel from San Francisco creates large-scaled photographs, capturing the relationships between human culture and natural systems. The Lake Project is a work from around 2002/2003 and includes a monograph published by Nazraeli Press.

The Lake Project comprises images from Owens Lake, the site of a formerly 200 square-mile lake in California on the eastern side of the Sierra Mountains. Beginning in 1913, the Owens River was diverted into the Owens Valley Aqueduct, to bring water to Los Angeles. By 1926, the lake had been depleted, exposing vast mineral flats and transforming a fertile valley into an arid landscape.”
