In the white-collar world, Kevin O’Connell is a civil engineer. But as soon as the longtime Denver resident ditches his briefcase and calculator, he’s a photographer—with a civil engineer’s mind.
For decades, O’Connell has been obsessed with lines, horizons, and energy development on the Eastern Plains. His early photographs, mostly black-and-white images, capture silos and office buildings dwarfed by sprawling skies. His new images flip that perspective.

Starting tonight, at the Museum of Contemporary Art, check out O’Connell’s color images of wind turbines and electrical boxes as they tower over the dusty prairie.
