I am going to document the coal trains and towns of northern Wyoming using large format cameras and black & white film
The coal produced in the Powder River Basin of Wyoming supplies the nation with 25% of its electricity.The small towns that exist along the railroads that carry the coal from northern Wyoming are vital to the moving of this precious cargo. Since the Clean Air Act of 1970 this resource has become even more valuable. The trains, the towns and the people of northeastern Wyoming are the subject of my photographic document. I use traditional black and white film in large format cameras and make my prints using gelatin silver processes. I am a professor of photography in Miami, Florida. You can see some of my work at www.barry.edu/gallery/artists/sweber My project is a not for profit endevour to create photographs that illustrate this part of America. I am scheduled to exhibit this project in February of 2013 at the Andy Gato Gallery of Barry University in Miami Shores, Florida. I want to share my photography with those who help me achieve my goals.(see rewards) Thank you for looking at my project.
