David Maisel’s “The Fall (Borox 6),” 2013. Maisel traveled to Toledo, Spain, for a commission celebrating the 400th anniversary of the death of El Greco, but stayed on to make the images in “The Fall.” He was surprised to find traces of the painter in the work. “There was a kind of resonance with El Greco’s palette and I guess it makes sense: He lived in the area,” says Maisel.
