On the occasion of the third edition of FOTO / INDUSTRIA, the Pinacoteca di Bologna hosts MITCH EPSTEIN and THE MAKING OF LYNCH - The Walther Collection.
“Landscapes of American Power. Photography from The Walther Collection” explores the effects of American industrialisation over the last century. The exhibition examines how two photographers, one hundred-years apart, documented the struggle to exploit natural energy resources and its transformative effects on the American landscape.

MITCH EPSTEIN
AMERICAN POWER

Central to the exhibition are fourteen large-scale colour photographs from Mitch Epstein’s acclaimed documentary series American Power (2003–2009), which chronicles the production and consumption of energy in North America.

THE MAKING OF LYNCH

The Making of Lynch (1917–1920) is an early album of vernacular photographs that document the rapid construction of a coal-mining town and industrial infrastructure in eastern Kentucky, showing the extraordinary changes wrought on this idyllic rural American landscape.
