The project documents the devastating effects that the extraction of Oil can have on a landscape, as well as the complicated human relationship with the oil industry. Alan spent over 5 years documenting and interviewing people that live and work within the industry in Alberta, Canada.
Hidden within the vast landscapes are a number of pockets that contain fragments of often-overlooked stories documenting the experiences of the people most affected by the oil industry in this area. ‘Oil Sands’ is a hand-bound book.
Stanley James Press designed this publication as well as hand binding each copy. Working with curator Chloe Juno.
