The Evolution of Ivanpah Solar. Photographs by Jamey Stillings. Text by Bruce Barcott. Foreword by Robert Redford. Introduction by Anne Tucker. Steidl, Gottingen, Germany, 2015. 148 pp., 60 tritone illustrations, 9¼x13½". 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.
