"What We Might Lose"
I'm working on a photographic documentation project titled "What We Might Lose." This is a four year long project that began as a study of the region where I live—Scenery Hill, Pennsylvania. I was interested in recording the beautiful landscapes, architecture and agricultural community that surrounds our home & office. This project has since changed focus since we learned that Allegheny Power plans to build a massive power line through our community. We became actively involved in the formation of a grass-roots organization which we named "Stop The Towers." The photographic project is now being expanded to include not only the area in and around Scenery Hill, Washington County, PA., but also neighboring communities and Greene County, PA. These are the places which will be negatively impacted by the construction of this power line.
