"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"

The Oil Sands project documents the devastating effects that the extraction of Oil can have on a landscape as well as the complicated human relationship with the oil industry.
Hidden within the vast landscapes are a number of pockets that contain fragments of often overlooked stories documenting the experiences of the people most affected by the oil industry in this area,
