Trevor Paglen: The Other Night Sky / MATRIX 225

The Other Night Sky, a series of photographs by Trevor Paglen documents 189 U.S. spy satellites that officially do not exist.

Trevor Paglen is interested in the idea of photography as a kind of truth-telling, but his pictures often stop short of documentation, with their blurry subjects and barely discernible detail. Paglen’s nearly constant subject is the “black world” of the United States government, and through research and visualization he attempts to outline the edges and folds of this hidden world of military and intelligence activities.
