APPALACHIA USA: PHOTOGRAPHS BY BUILDER LEVY. David R. Godine, Publisher, Inc., Boston, 2013. Copyright 2014. 126 pp. with 69 ills. 31 x 25 cm. LC 2013-21216 ISBN 9781567925081 In English.
Publisher's description: Despite the promise of alternative energy, coal still powers most of our power plants and steel mills. The story of its extraction, and of the people who live, work, suffer, and endure in West Virginia, Kentucky, and Pennsylvania, has been a source of fascination bordering on obsession for the photographer Builder Levy. For four decades, he has been witness to an industry that has changed from miners working underground with picks and shovels to draglines, mechanical earth movers that can tear apart mountain summits to expose veins of coal in massive, and massively destructive, quantities... Inspired by the great photographers working in the humanist tradition -- Lewis Hine, Paul Strand, Walker Evans, to name a few -- Builder Levy is a part of and a contributor to that continuum.
