Eyes of Artists

– Daniel Shea just updated his website with his beautiful new series Plume a continuation of his earlier series Removing Mountains. Be sure to check out his recent blog posts(1,2) on his travels to Southeast Ohio for a really great insight into the project. He also just booked his first solo showing of the work at the Appalachian Center in Kentucky. Congrats Daniel!

Plume is a photographic exploration of Southeast Ohio and its unusually dense concentration of coal-fired power plants. It serves as a follow-up to the work I made in 2007 in Appalachia, Removing Mountains, which focused on mountaintop removal, a particularly pervasive form of coal mining. Plume follows this coal up river to Ohio, where it is being burned to generate electricity.
