With her series Transuranic, Abbey Hepner returns to an obsolete nineteenth-century photographic process that employs uranium instead of silver to form the image. These uranotypes were created from images that Hepner shot at every site in the Western U.S. that transports radioactive waste to the Waste Isolation Pilot Plant (WIPP) in New Mexico. WIPP is the nation’s only permanent geological repository for radioactive waste, designed to permanently store transuranic waste for 10,000 years. Upon moving to New Mexico from Japan, where she was doing disaster relief work following the 2011 tsunami and nuclear meltdown, Hepner set out to understand the impact of the nuclear industry on her immediate landscape. The prints document nuclear facilities from an outsider’s perspective, indicating their ubiquitous and unassuming nature. Their red and yellow hues- formed by the exposure of uranyl nitrate- evokes a haunting nostalgic sensation that is instantly negated by the reality reflected in the images.

Abbey Hepner Biography

Abbey Hepner (b. 1983) is an artist and educator investigating the human relationship with landscape and technology. She received degrees in Art and Psychology from the University of Utah and an MFA in Studio Art from the University of New Mexico. Upon moving to New Mexico from Japan, where she did disaster relief work following the 2011 tsunami and nuclear meltdown, Abbey set out to understand the impact of the nuclear industry on her immediate landscape. In the Transuranic series, she uses an archaic photographic process that uses uranium instead of silver, in which uranyl nitrate is painted onto paper and exposed beneath a negative under a UV light.
