DESCRIPTION

SF Camerawork is pleased to host this panel discussion “What the Frack?!” in conjunction with Sarah Christianson’s exhibit of photographs, When the Landscape is Quiet Again:  North Dakota’s Oil Boom

The goal of this discussion is to inform the public about the growing pains and concerns over oil development in North Dakota and California.  Panelists will include Lora Jo Foo, co-chair of the Bay Area Sierra Club’s “Don’t Frack California” action team; Will Rostov, an attorney for Earthjustice who works on cases involving fracking; and western North Dakota landowners impacted by the oil boom.  The discussion will be moderated by photographer Sarah Christianson, who will speak about the history of oil production in North Dakota and her experiences there while creating this project.
