American power

June 26, 2010

Mitch Epstein is an incredible photographer who has tackled an interesting subject: American power. He writes on his project website:

This site asks everyone to look harder at their daily relationship to energy. We created it to help heighten awareness of the toll that energy production and consumption take on our economy, security, health, and natural resources. When we understand more about the realities of American power, we can make wiser choices about energy through conservation and civic action.

Below are a few of the works in this series (see the whole series here) and then take a look at some of the answers to the question, “what is American power?”

    Very interesting post, the world (and America as one of the leading countries) has to change the philosophy about the ways to obtain energy. The old style ways can’t be continued. Hopefully we can have a change soon. Great photos by the way. I love your blog, very interesting and amazing!
