EDITORS COMMENTS
This striking print captures the dramatic transformation of Fort McKay, Alberta, Canada over nearly four decades. The image on the left shows the pristine landscape of Fort McKay in 1984, a peaceful and untouched wilderness with lush greenery stretching as far as the eye can see. Fast forward to 2022, and the once serene scene has been drastically altered by tar sands exploitation. The aerial view reveals a stark contrast between the two images - where there was once natural beauty now lies a sprawling network of oil sands extraction sites. The vibrant colors of nature have been replaced by earthy tones of sand and machinery, illustrating the impact that industrialization has had on this remote region. The before and after comparison serves as a powerful reminder of the environmental consequences of unchecked resource extraction. As we witness firsthand how human activity can irreversibly change our planet's landscapes, it becomes clear that we must prioritize sustainable practices to protect our precious natural habitats for future generations. Through this thought-provoking image, we are reminded of both the fragility and resilience of our environment - a call to action to preserve what remains while striving for a more harmonious relationship between industry and nature.
