With the advent of Google Maps, aerial photography lost its novelty. What a surprise, then, to see the work of David Maisel. Maisel's body of work takes aerial photos out of the realm of pure functionality, creating a sort of documentary surrealism. Tweaking contrast and color, he creates landscapes at once alien and familiar, clearly defining the impact of human development on the natural landscape. He reaches a level Google Maps, even with its cameras in space, can't quite reach. See Maisel's Black Maps for yourself through Saturday at Holly Johnson Gallery, 1411 Dragon St.; gallery hours are 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays. Call 214-369-0169 or visit hollyjohnsongallery.com.
Tuesdays-Saturdays, 11 a.m.-5 p.m. Starts: March 28. Continues through April 26, 2009
