More from Western Power

"In earlier centuries, power came from above. We prayed to the heavens for good health and the strength to make use of the muscle power we possessed. Now power comes from below. We pay others to extract non-renewable resources and to generate electricity. The power plant has become a necessary mediator between out desires and their realization, much as the cathedral was the intermediary between god and man in the Middle Ages."–Joan Myers

"visitors will be introduced to contemporary photographers whose work reflects the myriad ways in which the media is used today. These include Myers’ panoramic images of generators and power sources, which address the industrialization’s profound impact on the environment."
