The industrialization of agriculture, egg version.
The Boston Globe has an elegant photo series called The Big Picture at its website. I don’t know why this isn’t more publicized. Maybe it is; maybe I’ve been distracted. I got lost for a half hour surfing around past entries. Above is one of the images from a series, “At Work,” and below are selections from that set. I put these into the series on Landscapes and Modernity here at the blog. (Try trees; the West; pastures; the A-Bomb; Foodscapes, and probably this solitary industrial one that was posted before I named the Landscape and Modernity series). I do so in hopes that they can be viewed as part of a larger question about the representation of nature and the environment (be it built by humans or not).
The images are all factories or industrialized settings — be it the Ruhr Valley, a charcoal operation in Cuba, German sweets, or Chinese eggs and dairy.
