A handful of Mitch Epstein’s images from his ongoing series American Power were used to highlight an article about wind power in this past weekend’s New York Times Magazine (here). There was an additional picture used on the table of contents page, but I can’t seem to find a link to that specific image anywhere (it was another one of wind turbines, in this case, flanking a golf course).
Epstein has been working on this series for many years now (artist site here, review of 2007 Sikkema Jenkins show here), and new images seem to find their way into the press from time to time. With all the attention focused on climate change and energy policy in this country, these images couldn’t have come at a more opportune time. A monograph of the entire body of work is in progress, to be published by Steidl in September (here).
