The Evolution of Ivanpah Solar by Jamey Stillings

In the past three years, APA member Jamey Stillings has won an APA Awards in Fine Art (2014), Landscape (2015) and most recently in our new Documentary category (2016). The images have all been part of an on-going series examining renewable energy development. 

His latest book, The Evolution of Ivanpah Solar takes a close look at the world's largest concentrated solar power plant. Jamey synthesizes his environmental interests with a long-held fascination for the intersections of nature and human activity.


 

From the stark terrain of the pre-construction landscape to the angular forms of the completed solar plant producing 392 megawatts of electricity on 14 square kilometers of public land, he explores transformative interactions between raw natural forms and the project’s precise geometric lines.

Photographing from a helicopter during first and last light, Stillings’s images incorporate tight abstractions, oblique views of geologic forms, and broad open views of the dramatic desert basin. 

To see the book, as a physical book on the Steidl website
