This series of photographic diptychs pairs images of natural forms with military artifacts
and architecture, documented at the White Sands Missile Range, New Mexico. The WSMR is
a military testing area operated by the United States Army. The range was originally
established as the White Sands Proving Ground on July 9, 1945, in preparation for the first
atomic bomb test on July 16, 1945. The largest military installation in the United States, the
WSMR encompasses almost 8,300 square km and continues to conduct missile testing and
range recovery operations.
