‘Nuclear’ documents topographies across the United States associated with atomic energy. Atomic power was once promoted as the epitome of progress and modernity, but with it came threats of nuclear warfare and disaster. Abandoned uranium mining towns, decaying atomic test sites, old nuclear reactors, and decommissioned nuclear missile bases now stand as an eerie testament to a time that was meant to revolutionize civilization.
