trevor paglen • limit telephotography

trevor paglen is an experimental geographer. his work involves spying on the government. these are pictures of remote u.s. military bases taken with high powered telescopes. he has said this about this work: "it is easier to photograph the depths of the solar system than it is to photograph the recesses of the military industrial complex." there's a nice article about trevor here. and see more of his work here.
