    washing up on the gulf coast. Map coming soon.

      I came across your photos while searching for images of the Gulf oil spill. I found these photos very striking and I was wondering if you would be the one I should contact or if someone else would be the one I am looking for. I am wondering if the author of the photos would be interested in contributing some pictures to a photography exhibition. I am a Student Curator at Lawrence University of Appleton, Wisconsin and my first exhibition is about a month away. For this exhibition, I have been planning to display a series of photos related to the Gulf disaster and its effects on the environment. The show will take place in our new Warch Campus Center, which has received awards for its environmentally friendly design and construction; it is part of a campus-wide initiative to be more green. This exhibition is designed to be in keeping with that movement, and also to raise awareness in the Midwest where we are not directly affected by events in the Gulf and do not see the results everyday. The space is not extremely large, but it is public and receives a lot of traffic, so I am hoping to get some moving images like yours to help get the attention of each passerby. That way more individuals would think about how such events affect everyone. Please contact me if you have information or interest in submitting work to the show or have any questions about this exhibition.

      Thank You,

      Jordan Severson

      Hi, Jordan - Stewart Long took this image, but it has been released into the Public Domain, so you can print and exhibit it even without permission. If you get in touch with Stewart (stewart@gonzoearth.com) I'm sure you could also get his blessing.
