Solar Power as Photo Art

carThis riveting photo is exactly why we need photographers, especially at newspapers, where they can shoot images like this on the way to whatever the assignment really was.  What an eye.

-Photo by Mark Boster, Los Angeles Times. Cutline: A car drives past a fraction of the 347,000 garage door-sized mirrors awaiting the sun at the Ivanpah Solar Electric Generating System in the Ivanpah Valley near the California/Nevada border. The 5.5 square mile plant in the Mojave Desert will generate 392 megawatts of power.

  1. Hi J. Walters! My name is Aquil Virani and I’m a visual artist based in Montreal who is looking to email you about my biggest collaborative art project ever. It’s called “Canada’s Self Portrait” and you can find out more at 800+ Canadians, all reflecting on Canadian identity with their own drawing. I couldn’t find an email address on the different platforms so I was hoping you could email me at Looking forward to getting in touch soon!
