Daniel Beltrá:高代价的美丽

A ship motors through oil spilled in the Gulf of Mexico from. The spill caused extensive damage to the marine and wildlife habitats as well as the Gulf’s fishing and tourism industries.

纵观全球,生态灾难一单接一单,没人能幸免。2010年墨西哥湾漏油事件2011年日本311地震后辐射水倒入大海。据维基百科,英国石油公司所属一个名为Deepwater Horizon的海外钻油平台故障并爆炸,导致11名工作人员死亡,漏油则使附近大范围水质受到污染,据美国政府当年的调查报告,有6104只鸟类,609只海龟,100只海豚在内的哺乳动物死亡,绝对是一场生态灾难。
怎样才能够引起人们的注意?摄影师Daniel Beltrá在事故一周后抵达该处为绿色和平拍照,并且以“华丽”,“梦幻”的影像吸引人们去关注这些本质上十分恐怖的东西。从这一系列照片中你可以看到色彩越艳丽,死神的气息越强烈。
摄影师租用直升机在高空3000尺拍摄,花了两个月共40小时,可以看到污染物的疯狂肆虐,也看到工作人员如何收拾残局。

Oil released from the failed Deepwater Horizon wellhead rises up to the surface of the Gulf of Mexico amidst an offshore platform drilling a relief well. A plume of smoke rises from a burn of collected oil. A total of 411 controlled burns were used to try rid the Gulf of the most visible surface oil from the BP Deepwater Horizon wellhead. Aerial view of oil leaked into the Gulf of Mexico. After the Deepwater Horizon platform sank on the 22nd, it began a spill that released over 60,000 barrels of crude oil every day for the next three months. Skimmer ships, floating containment booms, anchored barriers, sand-filled barricades along shorelines and dispersants were used in an attempt to protect hundreds of miles of beaches, wetlands, and estuaries from the spreading oil from the Deepwater Horizo Two ships monitor a controlled burn from oil that was spilled from the wellhead. To aid in clean-up efforts, 5,300 vessels of opportunity were hired from around the area. Oil covers the surface of the Gulf of Mexico on the vicinity of BP's Deepwater Horizon spill source. Boats gather near remaining oil platforms near the site of the Deepwater Horizon wellhead, leaving oily wakes as they move through the polluted water. Nearly one third of all U.S. oil production comes from 3,500 such platforms in the Gulf of Mexico. Paths of oil-free water remain in the calm waters of the Gulf of Mexico from boats attempting to clean up the crude spill off the coast of Louisiana. After the Deepwater Horizon oil spill released 5 million barrels of crude oil, the gushing wellhead was capped on July 15th. The impact of the spill continues even after the well has been capped. Oil from the BP Deepwater Horizon wellhead covers the surface of the Gulf of Mexico. A C-130 plane sprays dispersant on oil leaked from the Deepwater Horizon wellhead in the Gulf of Mexico. On May 20th, the Environmental Protection Agency told BP to find a dispersant less toxic than Corexit. Coast Guard overlooked the EPA, and granted BP A ship cuts through a band of oil on the surface of the water. A substantial layer of oily sediment stretches for dozens of miles in all directions from the wellhead, suggesting that a large amount of oil did not evaporate or dissipate, but may have inste
