The current issue of Esquire features my photographs in a multi-page story on Fracking. Director of Photography Michael Norseng gave clear, and exciting, direction for the portraits, saying that he wanted something contemporary, fresh and positive, not sad or depressing. Writer Tom Chiarella features voices from multiple sides of the issue. This was a story that is complex, but ultimately fascinating and very current.

Esquire did a fantastic edit but we shot so much strong material that everything you see here are actually outtakes from the final story.
