Jamey Stillings: The Evolution of Ivanpah Solar
Foreword by Robert Redford. Introduction by Anne Wilkes Tucker. Text by Bruce Barcott.
In this new monograph, Jamey Stillings (born 1955) synthesizes environmental interests with his longstanding fascination with the intersections of nature and human activity. In October 2010, Stillings began a three-and-a-half-year aerial exploration over what has become the world's largest concentrated solar power plant, the Ivanpah Solar Electric Generating System in the Mojave Desert of California. From the simple and stark terrain of the preconstruction landscape to the angular forms of the completed solar plant producing 392 megawatts of electricity on 14 square kilometers of public land, Stillings explores dynamic interactions between raw organic forms of nature and those defined by the project's precise geometric lines. Shot from a helicopter during first and last light, Stillings' black-and-white images intrigue with tight abstractions, oblique views of geologic and geometric forms, and broad open views of the dramatic desert basin.

PRAISE AND REVIEWS
Boulder City Review
An exquisite sense of desert scale is one of many things I like about photographer Jamey Stillings' work... His Ivanpah Solar monograph is a masterful black-and-white treatment of the creation of one of the world's largest renewable energy systems.
Stillings photographs, created in a documentary style, are equally fascinating and mysterious as the site itself.
