English Description :
"Bravo 20" is a remarkable exploration of the military's treatment of the American West.
Misrach lived in the Nevada desert for eighteen months, in an area where the U.S. Navy illegally tested high explosive bombs starting in 1952. The photographs capture both the natural beauty and the manmade devastation unique to this remote Nevada landscape. Misrach also includes his half-ironic, half-earnest plan to reclaim the land and designate it an environmental memorial and national park. Myriam Misrach's accompanying text documents the disturbing history of military expansionism in the American West in a collection of captivating and haunting photographs. Available at : Amazon.com,
