As you know I'm all for natural degradation. Nature is grossly overrated. I can't wait for the day when we get rid of it... then we'll be able to leave in peace and harmony with... er, stuff.
So you can understand why I was very impressed with David Maisel's photography. Good lighthearted fun at its best.
From the website:
"The Black Maps project is comprised of aerial photographs of environmentally impacted landscapes. [...] Looking down on these damaged wastelands, where man's efforts have eradicated the natural order, the views through my camera are both spectacular and horrifying. [...] As otherworldly as the images seem, they depict a shattered reality of our own making."
