Forgotten No. 8
The selected image, "Forgotten No. 8," is from the Forgotten - Series II. "Forgotten" depicts a World War II U.S. military base in East Greenland whose scattered fuel drums continue to leak more than a half-century later. This second series integrates a stylistic technique that merges low-key, historic-appearing black & white photographic style with contemporary bleeding-edge-color to metaphorically remind us of the cleanup that remains.
