Exposing Energy East: People and Places at Risk

Exposing Energy EastExposing Energy East: People and Places at Risk by TransCanada’s Energy East Pipeline Proposal


From wetlands to whales, forests to fish, lakes to rivers, TransCanada’s Energy East pipeline plan threatens some of Canada’s most pristine wilderness and wildlife. Exposing Energy East is an online photography exhibit that turns the lens on the exquisite landscapes put at risk by the pipeline, and shines the light on the concerns of people, from farmers to fisherman, who live along the pipeline’s proposed route. Taken together, the images remind us that these are real places and real communities at risk across Canada.

Exposing Energy East features the work of Garth Lenz (landscapes) and Robert van Waarden (portraits). Both have published work in esteemed outlets like National Geographic and been exhibited internationally, from London to New York.
