Consuming the American Landscape

This evening I came across the work of John Ganis (b. 1951) who has been working to document the environmental depradations that we've visited on the American landscape. In 2003 he published a book entitled Consuming the American Landscape (Dewi Lewis Publishing) from which I've lifted the images in this post. A couple years back his work was included in a multi-photographer exhibition called Imaging a Shattering Earth that still is touring. You can find more of Ganis's work here.
