There is a growing debate in Montana and it revolves completely around “development.” With something like 70% of Montanans being “pro-development,” strick, no-development-anywhere conservationists have a lot of minds to change. But this post isn’t about that. This post is about a very interesting project a man named Tony Bynum has begun. From the Great Fralls Tribune:
Tony Bynum of East Glacier has photographed grizzly bears, elk and Glacier National Park.
Oil drilling rigs are the focus of his latest work.
Mr. Bynum plans on spending the next ten years documenting, through photography, the oil development on the Blackfeet Reservation. Bynum wants “to show the changes development brings to the plains-meets-mountains landscape.”
Bynum’s original project was going to be focused on the development of a wind farm.
You can check out the work he has already done on this project by visiting his website.
