With Love, Marcellus XOXO

The Marcellus Shale Documentary Project has finally come to Philadelphia. The images collected “tell stories, through photographic images, of how the lives of Pennsylvanians are affected by the Marcellus Shale Gas Industry. By creating a visual document of the environmental, social and economic impact of drilling, the work aims to engage communities in the current Marcellus debate while providing important historical images for the future.”

Images, like this pipeline cutting through a southwestern Pennsylvania cow pasture, leave an impression. This stirring collection is on display at The Gershman Y in Philadelphia until February 14, 2013.

About The Exhibition:

“In capturing images of the people and places most affected by gas drilling, photographers Noah Addis, Nina Berman, Brian Cohen, Scott Goldsmith, Lynn Johnson, and Martha Rial examine both the positive and negative results of drilling and how the environment and the communities that live with the resources are being shaped. Organized by photographer Brian Cohen, and Laura Domencic, Director of Pittsburgh Center for the Arts.”
