LUCA ZANIER’S SPACE AND ENERGY REVEALS THE BEAUTY OF POWER PLANTS

Swiss photographer Luca Zanier recently visited more than 50 nuclear-power plants, water supplies, and oil refineries throughout Switzerland and Germany for his recent series Space and Energy, which reveals worlds very few get to see.

“Enormous spaces, endless walkways, wide sluices, cryptic signs; all combined with miles of cables and pipes. They form a technical universe that radiates a cool logic. A hidden world, known only to a few and yet which has a huge influence on our day to day lives, absolutely essential in fact.” – Luca Zanier

All images are included in her recent book, Power Book: Space and Energy.
