Renewable Energy and Mining in the High Desert of Chile
Published by Steidl.
Text by Mark Sloan, Jamey Stillings.
With Atacama, Santa Fe-based photographer Jamey Stillings (born 1955) depicts aerial views of large-scale renewable energy projects, enormous mining operations and the stark beauty of the Atacama Desert, so often scarred by human activity.
Chile produces a third of the world’s copper and has the largest known lithium reserves, and we utilize these resources daily in our cars, computers and smartphones. The country’s mining industry has traditionally been dependent on imported coal, diesel and natural gas for its energy. Yet the Atacama Desert has excellent solar and wind potential: new renewable energy projects there now supply significant electricity to the northern grid, transmit power to population centers in the south and are reducing mining’s dependence on fossil fuel.
Stillings’ photography elicits a critical dialogue about meeting our needs while seeking equilibrium between nature and human activity.

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.
