  • Catalogue Essay

    Mitch Epstein’s American Power series taken from 2003-2008 explores energy - how it is created, utilised and its transformation of the American landscape. Epstein documented sites around the country, from the largest refineries and power plants to the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, culminating in the publication of his American Power book in 2009.
