Overview

A beautiful photographic investigation of the interrelationships between water, energy and community. This photobook bridges the topics of energy and water, taking the Émosson Dam-a hydroelectric dam development located in Switzerland in the canton of Valais-as a case study. Construction on the site began in 1967 and opened to the public in 1975. Fed by the waters of the Mont Blanc massif, the dam is Switzerland's third highest dam after the Grande Dixence and Mauvoisin Dams. Hydroelectric Sublime is an artfully crafted volume that reflects upon the intricate bond between the people who count on dams for energy and water and the source that fuels this bounty. With expert insight and breathtaking views, Hydroelectric Sublime delves into Émosson's rich history and pays tribute to an engineering feat so grand that it positioned Switzerland as a leading energy hub.
