This book is a study of the mostly unseen processes that are a part of suburban growth and urban sprawl. For five years I trained my cameras on a large scale suburban development and documented the land as it was transformed from an undeveloped prairie into a center of commerce. The resultant pictures paint a raw landscape of power and control.
