2015

Edition of 31
54 pages
9 x 12 x 2 inches

Twentysix Charging Stations is a contemporary response to Ed Ruscha’s seminal artist book Twentysix Gasoline Stations.

Twentysix Charging Stations features photographs of electric car charging stations taken from the rural areas of Portland, Oregon, to the Central Valley of California, to the tech hubs in Silicon Valley.

From underground parking garages at hospitals to suburban libraries, from shopping malls to truck stops, electric charging stations are both interesting and mundane; democratic and elitist.
