Replete with the author's striking photographs, Infrastructure is a unique and spectacular guide, exploring all the major "ecosystems" of our modern industrial world, revealing what the structures are and why they are there, and uncovering beauty in unexpected places. Covering agriculture, resources, energy, communication, transportation, manufacturing and waste, this is the perfect companion to the industrial landscape. The objects that fill our everyday environment, such as streetlights, railway tracks, antenna towers, motorway overpasses, satellite dishes and thousands of other manufactured items, are so familiar they have become so familiar we hardly notice them. Larger and more exotic facilities have transformed vast tracts of the landscape: coal mines, nuclear power plants, oil refineries and steel mills, to name a few. This book is a compelling and clear guide for those who want to explore and understand this mysterious world created by man.
