Wallpaper Wednesday: Aspen Highlands 1974


Oh, how I miss Documerica. From 1972 to 1977, the Environmental Protection Agency sent 70 top photographers around the United States to document issues related to “environment concern.” How skiing at Aspen Highlands bears directly on issues of pollution and environmental integrity aren’t quite clear, but, nevertheless, the archives of Documerica are filled with an amazing snapshot of this country on the edge of major environmental cleanup. Especially in light of this week’s poll, which asks if you had a time machine which sport and decade you’d return to, we’ll take 1970s Aspen.
