Paul Shambroom... Playground Donald, "Terror Town" (2005, Playas Training Center, NM., Archival pigmented inkjet on paper) From the Homeland Secuirty Series. "...For my current project I am photographing training facilities, equipment and personnel involved in the massive government and private sector efforts to prepare for and respond to terrorist attacks within the nation's borders. First responders and law enforcement officers train in large-scale simulated environments such as 'Disaster City' in Texas and 'Terror Town,' an abandoned mining community in New Mexico purchased with funds from the Department of Homeland Security. This work examines issues of fear, safety and liberty in post-9/11 America." From Paul Shambroom.
