This photo is from Scott Goldsmith's series on fracking.
An excerpt from his project:
This story is about an invisible gas buried about a mile underground. The natural gas can be found in shale rock formations around the world. The methods and means used to extract natural gas, along with the aftermath, leads to contamination of air, water, and land.
These photographs center on the Marcellus Shale in Western Pennsylvania. Energy companies have taken vast quantities of natural gas from the earth and piped it to consumers, promoting it as clean domestic energy that can help wean America off foreign oil. In the meantime, growing complaints of water contamination have led to concerns that hydraulic fracturing posts grave risks to farmers, homeowners, and drillers along with food and water consumed by animals and people.

"My goal is to create high-impact, evocative images which not only inform, but also stir a viewer’s emotions, images that cause reflection and empathy with another human being’s struggle. When successful, my photos reveal a common humanity, allowing viewers to see a bit of themselves in other human beings, half a world away."

Linda Kuo's donation comes from her “As Intended” series:
“‘As Intended’ focuses on AWA farms: family-owned farms with Animal Welfare Approved status. AWA animals are raised outdoors, on pasture or range, where they are allowed to behave in their natural physical and psychological states. From birth to slaughter, each species’ needs are addressed under the most stringent ethical standards.
Less than 1% of animals are raised in this manner.”
