Crescent Dunes: Photo Series by Reuben Wu

Published Jan 19, 2017

Chicago-based photographer, music and filmmaker Reuben Wu (previously) captures the mirrored beauty of Crescent Dunes, a solar energy facility in Nevada.

“From the window of an airplane high above Nevada, the Crescent Dunes Solar Energy Facility is a bright flash on the landscape. You can really only appreciate its enormity from the ground: 1,670 acres of desert blanketed with 10,347 billboard-sized mirrors that generate enough electricity to power 75,000 homes.

Wu used a Phase One 100XF camera for stills and a Canon 5D to make a time-lapse video of the array following the sun, with music composed by Zak Marcom. He even got to drive under the mirrors. ‘It was like being in a forest of metal and glass,’ Wu says. A forest of metal and seen from the sky but best appreciated from the ground.”
