five states of freedom [number 8] – photograph, 2014
Shot on a former Titan II 570-9 Missile Silo near Benson, Arizona. The Titan II program was developed by the US military to increase the size, strength, and speed of the nation’s weapons arsenal in the 1950s and 60s. Each missile carried a single warhead stored and launched from underground silos and were active from May 1, 1962 through December 2, 1983. Now privately owned, we were unable to enter the premises.
