Andrew Borowiec: Compromised Paradise, The Gulf Coast In The 21st Century

I’m forever being drawn into thinking about the activity (mental, physical, metaphysical…) of photographing, and always discovering photographers whose work inspires me to broaden my own thinking and practise. Here’s 20 minutes that will broaden your perspective on an (to me) unloveable landscape, and perhaps also raise some questions about the possibilities of photography as an educational medium. Borowiec’s narration is really an essential part of the experience (couldn’t embed, so you’ll have to click the link):

Andrew Borowiec: Compromised Paradise, The Gulf Coast In The 21st Century from Wayne Maugans.

Borowiec’s panoramic viewpoint isn’t something I’d have thought to use myself, but it really contributes to the success and impact of the presentation, and makes me rethink my own approaches to framing the realities I’m interested in trying to document. There’s an equally moving and informative shorter video that’s really worth your time too:
