The Evolution of Ivanpah Solar
By Jamey StillingsSteidl, 2015.
 
Jamey Stillings The Evolution of Ivanpah Solar received 1st Place in IPA's Monograph category as well as taking home the overall Best Book honors for 2016. 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.

“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

Stillings’s The Evolution of Ivanpah Solar culminated in a beautifully reproduced monograph, published by Steidl in 2015, which also received 'Best Book' honors from photo-eye Bookstore and Time Magazine's Lightbox blog last year. The book reproduces 60 of Stillings’ images with essay contributions from Bruce Barcott, Robert Redford and Anne Tucker.

Mitch Dobrowner’s dramatic and sublime STORMS series received a 1st place finish in IPA’s Fine Art Landscape category. In 2009 Mitch Dobrowner actively started seeking out tempests and twisters in the company of professional storm chasers, and since that time, storm chasing has evolved into a passion for the photographer.

Storms are living breathing phenomenons born when all the various elements come together in unison. The images presented capture what I see and feel while standing in front of these amazing creations of Mother Earth.” – Mitch Dobrowner

A popular series, STORMS has been published in National Geographic, as well as numerous online sources, and the 2013 monograph from Aperture is sold out. Just this September, Dobrowner released nine striking new works in the ongoing STORMS series. This is the second time Dobrowner has won this award; he was previously honored in 2011.
