In 2003, Mitch Epstein began American Power, a five-year long, twenty-five state investigation of energy production and consumption in the United States, and how they had become manifest in the country’s landscape and culture. His interest lay in the notion of power; in the overlap of electrical, corporate, civic, religious, environmental, commercial, governmental, and artistic power.

To broaden his perspective on his own work, he asked musician Erik Friedlander to collaborate. Friedlander composed music inspired by the American Power pictures; and on a July night in a Roman amphitheater, Friedlander performed his music on the cello in tandem with Mitch, who narrated the projects history, while behind them the photographs were projected on a cinematic screen.
