photo-eye is pleased to announce Atomic Overlook
a portfolio of color images by photographer Clay Lipsky, new to the Photographer’s Showcase. Atomic Overlook
re-contextualizes a legacy of atomic bomb tests in order to keep the ongoing nuclear threat fresh and omnipresent. It also speaks to the current state of the world, a voyeuristic, tourist filled culture where catastrophe is viewed as entertainment by increasingly desensitized masses. The iconic mushroom cloud, a loaded symbol burned into our collective subconscious, represents a triumph of science, apocalyptic destruction and even national pride, but in this case also serves as metaphor for larger societal issues such as global warming, nuclear power, industrialization and pollution. Archival pigment prints are available in limited editions of 10.
