Bart Everson's PhotoNOLA Exhibit "After the Peak"

Description

View the work of photographer Bart Everson as part of the annual PhotoNOLA Festival. His exhibit, titled "After the Peak," is "a fantasy about post-oil America. Every schoolchild knows that fossil fuels are not renewable resources. Someday, we will run out. The question is when. Some say we’ve already passed the peak of production, while others say we haven’t reached it yet. Currently our species seems hellbent on extracting all the petrochemical deposits from the Earth’s crust as quickly as possible. That only hastens our approach to depletion. As I photographed abandoned gas stations and automobile dealerships, I imagined a future when all such sites are neglected and left to fall into ruin."

There will be a reception Thursday, December 7, 2017 at 6pm.

Every Monday - Saturday from December 1 - December 30.
