"The Guardian"" [Miller] is completely connected to his subjects, and his photographs are a visual extension, filled with reverence and empathy. Quest " A phenomenal collection of images. Crave Online " Looking back through the lens of elapsed time at perhaps the most significant chapter of American space-flight history, Roland Miller captures the stark beauty of the abandoned relics of the sites that paved the way to the moon.

Reseña del editor:

Stenciled on many of the deactivated facilities at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, the evocative phrase "abandoned in place" indicates the structures that have been deserted. Some structures, too solid for any known method of demolition, stand empty and unused in the wake of the early period of US space exploration. Now Roland Miller's color photographs document the NASA, Air Force, and Army facilities across the nation that once played a crucial role in the space race. Rapidly succumbing to the elements and demolition, most of the blockhouses, launch towers, tunnels, test stands, and control rooms featured in Abandoned in Place are located at secure military or NASA facilities with little or no public access. Some have been repurposed, but over half of the facilities photographed no longer exist. The haunting images collected here impart artistic insight while preserving an important period in history.
