One And A Half Acres is a photographic essay that examines how 150 former Minuteman II missile silos in the rural Missouri landscape have developed their own individual characteristics after being decommissioned by arms control treaties over 25 years ago.
These photographs reveal how identical ICBM launch facilities – after 30 years of military use – have been replaced with what each landowner finds useful: hay bail storage, church parking lot, farm equipment, out buildings, chemical storage, fireworks stand, automotive collections, housing development, or grass.
In most cases the eight-foot security fence is the only visible piece left of the original one-and-a-half to two-acre facility and provides a consistent visual cue to orient the viewer in the landscape.
Today, each of these sites is a testament and optimistic reminder that we as the human race still have time to deescalate the proliferation and use of weapons that have such devastating potential.
