Oil Sands / Tar Sands Feature and Interview 2017

Oil Sands / Tar Sands Feature and Interview 2017

"On of the land & us today, we are featuring the work of photographer Alan Gignoux — Gignoux’s work stood out to us as a work which has had and continues to have absolute dedication and tireless effort poured into it, to bring to light the goings on around topics such as this. Prior to this project, we ourselves had little-to-no knowledge of the oil sands, and, essentially, the consequences of these works"

AOP Awards

Excited and honoured

Our short film,  Appalachia: Mountain Tops to Moonscapes  is a finalist in the moving image category at this year's AOP Awards.

The ancient mountain forests of Appalachia have been felled and what remains is an eerie, barren landscape of rough-hewn rock.   The short film shows the effects of mountain top removal in America's coal heartland.

The Awards will be presented at a special ceremony at the Old Truman Brewery on Brick Land on the evening of 13 October and followed by the exhibition and a packed program of talks and seminars and workshops under the title of Beyond the Lens running Friday 14 - Monday 17 October.
