Alberta Tar/Oil Sands Art Book

A high quality art photo book of images from the Beautiful Destruction series is presently (Dec 2012) being

compiled for publication in 2013.

This art oriented book, with text contributions from individuals of varying opinion & different insights into the development in Northern Alberta, will - with its imagery - be designed to address & overcome the polarities & anamosities that presently confound it.
