Hyperallergic: Superfund Stories and Photographs for America’s 1,300 Most Toxic Sites, September 21, 2015


There are over 1,300 Superfund sites across the United States, and Toxic Sites US is a photography, video, documentary, data, and storytelling project to humanize those statistics of pollution. Designated by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) as areas of hazardous and toxic contamination in need of clean up, Superfund sites include former military manufacturing centers, lead mining areas, oil refinery waste, and other industrial hazards. What they almost all have in common, from the Gowanus Canal in Brooklyn to the Naval Air Station Alameda in California, is they are places people live with and alongside.
