Interviews with artists and specialists who explore social, political and environmental issues, conducted by K. Yoland. This week: photographer and 2018 Guggenheim fellow David Maisel discusses his work including his latest project, ‘Proving Ground’. For over thirty years, Maisel has produced photographs of compromised landscapes, revealing the physical impact of activities such as mining, logging and urban sprawl. His latest project is shot in one of the most secretive of American military zones, 'Dugway Proving Ground'. The site’s primary mission is to develop and test chemical and biological weaponry and defense programmes. Maisel has a new solo exhibition at Yancey Richardson in New York opening 17 May.
