»The Drake Equation«
Andrew Phelps & Paul Kranzler
The “National Radio Quiet Zone” was established in the 1950s in the state of Virginia. There are no radio or TV broadcasts and cell phones do not work – no radio wave is to disturb the grotesque, huge telescopes in their search for traces of extraterrestrial life.
Photographers Andrew Phelps and Paul Kranzler visit a place where a bizarre mixture of people lives together: the rural population of a provincial town, the highly specialized scientists of the research facility and city dwellers fleeing electromagnetic fields, electrosensitive civilization refugees.
“I think that in the photographic work that you now hold in your hands, there are many things involved, time and science and technology and nature. For me, however, it is essentially a work on America“, writes Alard von Kittlitz in the text to the accompanying book, that has been published by Fountain Books Berlin.
