Photographing The Newest Man-Made Marvel – LINK

Photographer Jamey Stillings speaks very casually about his relationship with
bridges. Even though his photo studies began over 20 years ago when he
was an MFA student. Even though he has been obsessively documenting the
construction of the Colorado River Bridge at the Hoover Dam for over year. Oh,
and he almost forgot to mention that his son’s name means “bridge” in another
language. In fact, Stillings seems almost surprised at the recurring
theme.

I’ve been across Hoover Dam a few times since construction started on this engineering marvel; it’s always interesting to see how much progress has been made from the last trip.

This photo set is awesome.
