In the Air: Visualizing what we breathe

Thursday, September 17, 2015 to Sunday, February 28, 2016

Photographers Brian Cohen, Scott Goldsmith, Lynn Johnson and Annie O’Neill have spent the last year recording people and places that illustrate the environmental, social and economic effects of air quality in Western Pennsylvania.

An accompanying book designed by Brett Yasko with essays by Reid Frazier will expand on and provide context to the visual work. In addition to the exhibition and book, the project will also have an online presence, air.thedocumentaryworks.org. This team has gathered materials that describe the variety of issues at the heart of the air quality subject; highlighting the relationship between the health of the community and the health of its environment.
