Summaries and Reviews
Amazon.com description: Product Description: Places of Power, John Sexton's third book, transports the viewer to places few have experienced firsthand. Sexton's images explore the haunting mystery of ancient Anasazi cliff dwellings, the monumental scale of Hoover Dam, the massive energy of steam turbine power plants, and the intricacies of the Space Shuttle - the single most complex system ever assembled in human history. The eighty-three photographs in Places of Power bring the viewer into intimate contact with these amazing technological achievements. Seen through Sexton's eyes, these structures and machines built for utilitarian purposes are transformed into miraculous sculptures.
The book includes a foreword by journalist Walter Cronkite, as well as an essay by computer scientist, Rob Pike. John Sexton shares his experiences and challenges in the making of these photographs in his own essays.
