The Bakken Goes Boom! [Mar. 30th, 2016|07:55 am]

You probably know I've been working with some professors at the University of North Dakota for a couple of years now, helping to document life in the western part of the state during the oil boom (and now bust) -- we've had a few things come out of that, the most recent of which is The Bakken Goes Boom a book of academic papers and my photos (I did the cover too).

There's been some great press so far about the book. (The one from Fast Co. Design is the one with the biggest interview with me if you're looking for Behind the Scenes).

As always, Jordan Techer at Slate magazine printed a big beautiful photo essay.

We got a nice
writeup in the ND Quarterly where they quote me extensively at the end.

A positive
writeup in the Daily Freakin Mail that printed a whole bunch of my photos. Oddly enough, the comments section remained relatively civil.

I'm hoping to be able to make it back to Nodak sooner rather than later to keep working on this project.

One of my photos from there, by the way, will be hanging at my show at the Stanek Gallery opening April 1, so you can see it gigantic and up close, the way you were meant to.

Lovely work, on an important happening. I think most people have heard about the ND boom/bust in a general sense, but will never see it for themselves unless pulled there by a job, so this is vital stuff for both its educational as well as historical value.

ND respect (I lived there as a toddler, and again from first grade through college).
