An Exclusive Video Tour of Oil Sands Photos

Garth Lenz, a photographer from British Columbia, has filmed environmental devastation but had never seen anything quite like the Athabasca Oil Sands.

Photographer Garth Lenz offers some insights into the composition of his pictures of the Alberta oil sands at a recent exhibition in Brooklyn's Powerhouse Arena. His photo series, Canada’s Tar Sands and the True Cost of Oil, were part of a show, Ten Years After Nine/Eleven: Searching for a 21st Century Landscape, sponsored by the documentary site Social Documentary.net. ICTMN caught up with Lenz at the opening and spoke with him on-camera. See a full slide show of his work here, along with links to other coverage.
