Picturing Power

Paul Shambroom has an exhibit of photographs at the Weisman Museum entitled Picturing Power. I visited last weekend and there are some absolute gems in there. Mr. Shambroom traveled has the country taking photos of things emblematic of power: factories, offices, nuclear weapons, security and meetings.

My favorite were definitely the small town council images from the Meetings series.
