Trevor Paglen

Trevor Paglen combines art with an obsession with American government black-ops. The photograph below is from a series called "The Other Night Sky" featuring satellites that officially do not exist, spy satellites. He also shoots covert CIA prisons abroad and restricted bases on American soil. Very cool stuff. Better yet, he's coming to Oberlin to speak on Monday, December 8th at 12:00 noon at the Cat in the Cream. Come hear him speak and check out his site at

This one is from a series featuring military patches and insignia from black ops operations. I thought it was funny for its straight-forwardness.

Finally, how scary is this...
