THE AMAZON PINK DOLPHIN’S VOICE
SELVA-Vida Sin Fronteras: 09/12/2013
It was one of the world’s most destructive environmental disasters in human history
: in April 2010 an explosion on the Deepwater Horizon oil drilling rig killed 11 men and sent 210m gallons of oil into the Gulf of Mexico, causing a black tide covering 68,000 square miles of ocean and spreading along 16,000 miles of coastline.Spill
is the first book from photographer Daniel Beltrá
, who documented the spill from a Cessna floatplane, 3,000ft above the Louisiana coastline. It includes 27 of his award-winning aerial photographs that have gone on show around the world, and an essay by Barbara Bloemink
that gives context to Spill as an artistic response to the environment and nature.
