Photographing the Secret City
In 1942, Ed Westcott was a young man sent to photograph a secret government site in East Tennessee. That site became Oak Ridge, the "Secret City" where the Manhattan Project took shape. Sensing the need to document more than buildings, Westcott captured quintessential images of the age, photographing the giants of science, politics and the military as well as everyday life "behind the fence," working well beyond the Cold War years.
