San Francisco-based David Maisel is an artist working in photography, video and painting, and the recipient of a 2018 Guggenheim Fellowship in the Creative Arts. Among his chief concerns are the politics and aesthetics of radically human-altered environments, and how we perceive our place in time via investigations of cultural artifacts from both past and present. His work focuses on power and the production of space by examining landscapes, objects and archives that are off-limits, quarantined or hidden from view.


The i3: Images, Ideas, Inspiration lecture series features leading photographers and artists, hardware and software developers and industry experts. Presented by MPS Digital Photography.
