A propos de cet article

Language: English . Brand New Book. Aware of the decline and imminent demise of many integrated steel mills in the United States and fascinated by their monumental architecture, machinery, and the culture of work and community that was inextricably connected to them, Joseph E. B. Elliott photographed the mills in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, from 1989 until their final shut down. With the support of Lance Metz he amassed more than one thousand new large-format photographs and hundreds of archival images and documents from the Bethlehem Steel Corporation and the workers in the plant. The result is an archive that preserves for future generations a record of the development, workings, and human dimensions of an integrated steel plant typical of machine-age America. A steel mill is a visually thrilling place, and Elliott s photographs embody much more than a technical record. The scale, architecture, and material qualities of the site are compelling references for an audience of the post-industrial age. This book appeals to the growing fascination with industrial archaeology and will be an inspiration for the preservation and reuse of these relic structures. N° de réf. du libraire AAS9781935195252

Synopsis :

 

Aware of the decline and imminent demise of many integrated steel mills in the United States and fascinated by their monumental architecture, machinery, and the culture of work, Joseph Elliott photographed the mills in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, from 1989 until final shutdown. Working with historian Lance Metz, he amassed more than 1,000 large format photographs and hundreds of archival images and documents, in an effort to preserve a record of the development, workings, and human dimensions of an integrated steel plant typical of machine age America.

A steel mill is a visually thrilling place, and Elliott’s meticulously designed photographs embody much more than a technical record. The scale, architecture, and material qualities of the site are compelling referents for an audience of the post-industrialage. An essay by art historian Betsy Fahlman situates Elliott’s work in the context of the industrial sublime. This book will appeal all who are fascinated with industrial art and archaeology, and will be an inspiration for the preservation and re-use of these relic structures.
