The landscape of Emmet Gowin's photographs in Changing the Earth is one of cruel beauty. Gowin, high above his subjects, photographs the gold mines, open coal pits, battlefields and atomic test sites which have scarred the earth's skin. etc...
The craters in this last photograph are from Nevada's nuclear testing sites.
