A friend of mine, Brian, clued me in to a blog he had recently seen. It’s a photojournalistic tour of Dimock, Pennsylvania – the town featured in Gas Land – a community at the epicenter of Marcellus Shale hydrofracking activity.







The tiny Northern Pennsylvania town continues to make news as the EPA very recently determined that its drinking water is safe, despite the fact that many residents need to have fresh drinking water trucked in from miles away.







The author, Lauren, tells a compelling photographic story of a town, and a people, affected by the “progress” of the fracking industry. It’s about Dimock, but one gets the sense that it could be about any town where hydrofracking occurs.







Good work, Lauren.
