Smashing Places

In his new book, Time Machines, New York-based photographer Stanley Greenberg once again explores the infrastructure of modern life, this time documenting the machinery of high energy physics.

Greenberg visited nearly twenty particle accelerators–including Fermilab, CERN, and Japan’s J-PARC–where physicists are investigating the properties of matter and trying to figure out what happened just after the Big Bang. Or as a physicist at Fermilab described it to him, places where they “smash things into other things and see what happens.”
