This photograph is part of a large series describing the construction of Park City, a ski-resort near Salt Lake City, Utah. With an assumed scientific detachment, Baltz examines the unfinished building work and its relationship with the landscape. Shapes of the building debris often echo the distant mountain ranges while new communities seem to rise from the barest beginnings.
