Book Description 
  
Places of Power, John Sexton's third book, transports the viewer to places few have experienced firsthand. This beautifully produced book explores the haunting mystery of ancient Anasazi cliff dwellings, the monumental scale of Hoover Dam, the massive energy of steam turbine power plants, and the intricacies of the Space Shuttle -- the single most complex system ever assembled in human history. John Sexton is internationally respected as a photographer, master print maker, and photographic educator. The photographs in Places of Power bring the viewer into intimate contact with these amazing technological achievements. Seen through Sexton's eyes, these structures and machines that were built for utilitarian purposes are transformed into miraculous sculptures.  
  
 
  
In addition to the stunning reproductions, the book includes a fascinating foreword by Walter Cronkite, and an essay by noted computer scientist, Rob Pike. John Sexton shares his experiences and challenges in the making of these photographs in his own essay. Marked by the same excellence in printing and design as Sexton's two previous award-winning books, Quiet Light and Listen to the Trees, Places of Power is an equally outstanding experience.
