ABOUT THE BOOK
“I am fascinated by the visual energy and tension created at the intersections of nature and human activity. Uniquely as a species, we consciously modify and use the environment for our perceived needs or enjoyment.” –Jamey Stillings
In 2010, Jamey Stillings began a three-and-a-half-year aerial survey of the complete construction of the Ivanpah Solar Electric Generating System, the world’s largest concentrated solar power plant producing 392 megawatts of electricity on 14 square kilometers of public land. Stillings’ photographs explore the transformative interactions between raw natural forms and the project’s precise geometric lines, visually stunning with hundreds of thousands of mirrors reflecting across the stark beauty of the Mojave Desert.
Published by Steidl, the book reproduces 60 of Stillings’ images with contributions from Bruce Barcott, Robert Redford and Anne Tucker.
Jamey Stillings was born in 1955, grew up in Oregon, and currently lives in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Stillings, whose three-decade career incorporates documentary, fine art and commercial projects, earned a BA from Willamette University and an MFA from Rochester Institute of Technology. His work has been exhibited internationally and is held in the collections of the United States Library of Congress; the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston; the Nevada Museum of Art; and the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. Stillings was awarded the 2013 Eliot Porter Grant and was a featured at TEDxABQ 2014. His first monograph, The Bridge at Hoover Dam, was published by Nazraeli Press in 2011.
