An interview with Power

Some personal thoughts on Power:
He has a very distinctive style, one primarily concerned with space and the texture, color, and light at work within that space. Few people appear in his photographs; he seems to prefer these spaces as if they're abandoned or newly born, undisturbed by occupants. They begin to feel like the remnants of some vanished civilization, or perhaps a civilization without people where structures assemble themselves by some mysterious means. His projects documenting large scale engineering efforts -- Superstructure (The Millenium Dome) and The Airbus A380 -- emphasize this alien sense of space and bring to mind science fiction films like 2001: A Space Odyssey. On the rare occasion that people do appear, they are either blurred by his exposures or they appear en masse, such that they become a part of the architecture.
