Publisher's Description
Lynn Davis, known for surveys of natural and man-made wonders, has long been facinated with the objects and venues of space exploration. her photographs of the architectural icons, cornerstones, and abandoned sites of the space race reflect the many facets of a historically complex industry: the beginnings of the space exploration; the changing nature of technology; and a fascination with otherwordly ruins. She emphasizes the bold modernism of these sites while evoking the presence of obsolete technologies.

Davis traveled to hisotric sites in Kazakhstan, Russia, Germany, French Guiana, and the United States.
