In this collection of film photographs by accomplished artist David T. Hanson, the photographer documents the reality of America’s environmental destruction. The hauntingly simple images, photographed in the 1980’s, show a higher level of artistry and demand much more of the viewer than is common today. The four distinct projects that make up this book show a fascinating progression in the artist’s work that offers inspiration and education to any present-day documentarian photographer. With accompanying writing by scholars Joyce Carol Oates and Miles Orvell, this photography book offers a wealth of historical knowledge, photographic beauty, and thought provoking insight.
