Gas & Water

February 10, 2012

Coal Seam Gas drilling is controversial. It’s also worth billions.

Some Australians love it, some hate it. The issues are big and they are complex. The industry is expanding like wildfire and the story develops daily. To more effectively tell this very thin slice of the story I combined pictures with audio, text and time-lapse video.

I believe this sector of Australia’s massive resources boom has the potential to make major political shifts. While reporting on it a farmer, a traditionally conservative lot, said to me “thank god for the Greens”.

great job on Tim .. Gas I believe that photojournalism is showing a new face, in which photographers to enhance the production of video journalism. With a different content of the major media outlets because they are copyrighted, show the author’s vision. Congratulations for the work, a hug.
