Nevada Mines I am fascinated by the ongoing consumption and abandonment of the landscape by commercial, military, and industrial processes. The literal and visual debris they leave behind in the form of structures and alterations to the landscape are a source of disturbing and beautiful contrast. These images are all from a project documenting abandoned mine sites in Nevada. Many of these sites no longer exist, or have been significantly degraded or vandalized. Often these sites exist in what appears to be a “suspended” state, as if operations there simply and suddenly ceased, but in all cases the sites are slowly decaying. The quiet and more personal interior spaces found in most of these photographs are a subtle but stark reminder of the much larger scale of the often destructive operations now abandoned.
