Publisher's Description
Published to accompany documentary photographer Paul Shambroom’s extensive 2008-09 American traveling exhibition, Picturing Power is the first volume to bring together selections from all five of his most important—and highly acclaimed—series to date. In the late 1980s, Shambroom visited manufacturing sites and office spaces to capture the spaces where many Americans spend the majority of their days. His next series, Nuclear Weapons, gained him access to long-restricted nuclear sites, where he produced eerie images of slumbering bombs and immaculate, empty war rooms. For Meetings (1999-2003), Shambroom traveled to municipal meetings in small communities to document public officials in a formal portrait style. His most recent series, Security (2004-present), documents eerie scenes of security training at special facilities across the country.
