Description
Though best known for his photographs of large-scale human interventions in the landscape of the western United States (dams, bridges, and other industrial structures), the artist here turns to a minute examination of the theme by photographing the small remnants of human life he found at his feet. Each piece of debris is offered up as evidence, a valued record of the civilization it represents to be carefully described and cataloged for further study
