This collaborative project is a photographic exploration of the potential impacts of hydraulic fracturing, gas pipeline expansion, and gas export in the state of Maryland and beyond. A majority of United States citizens are not aware of the potentially severe environmental impacts and externality costs of the gas industry – this information is not usually aired or discussed on television news.

As climate change and pollution plague our planet, it is our societal responsibility to begin transitioning to a sustainable infrastructure. Sustainability is key to preserving our resources for future generations. Photographic documentaries can serve as a framework for change, and can work to inspire future generations of creative minds and innovators. We believe that photographs accompanied by scientific data that further explain the imagery, may be the most effective way of conveying the truths of our human-inflicted environmental disasters.
