Kevin O'Connell has been a photographer of the American West since 1989, focusing mainly on his home state of Colorado.
O'Connell is well versed in issues of the American West, and is focused as an artist on discussions concerning the reconciliation of how we live in these landscapes.
MCA Denver invited O'Connell to create a body of work concerning renewable energy landscapes, engaging a dialog about the changing nature of the West as it responds to humanity's ever-growing need for energy resources.
Sponsored in part by members of MCA Denver's Director's & President's Circles.
