Oil Sick: Our addiction to fossil fuels.

A few years ago I read David Rosenberg’s piece on Photog Blake Little’s “Preservation”series and It inspired me to do something similar… except as a comment on our deteriorating global condition drowning in our addiction to fossil fuels.

The result is “Oil Sick”. Together with the help of the amazing model VikTory we entered the FD Studios in LA and started to explore drowning in oil. I wanted to capture something haunting, striking, and metaphorically powerful. Fortunately VikTory embodied the material and space and really brought this piece to life.

The technical of it was a lot of industrial grade Molasses, shot on a Canon 5DIII and Sony FS700 in DNG. Fortunately Molasses is fantastic for your skin and easy to wash off. If only crude oil was the same.

As Greenland becomes green, the Northwest passage no longer seals itself off from the world, and global temperatures rise it is impossible not to be acutely aware of what we’ve already done to our home. She is our mother, our sister, our love, and we need to protect her at all cost, all of us. Those Tesla cyber trucks can’t come quick enough;)
