Over the past 30 years, American photographer David T. Hanson has scoured the American landscape for telltale signs of the way we live now-what we do with our land and how we live on it. Colstrip, Montana, is the site of one of the largest coal strip-mines in North America. Between 1982 and 1985, Hanson undertook a photographic investigation of the mine, power plant and industrial site. The Colstrip, Montana sequence was first exhibited by John Szarkowski at The Museum of Modern Art in 1986. This book publishes the entire series for the first time.
