I am honored and pleased to announce that my photograph "Petroleum Skyline" was chosen as one of the top 15 images (among thousands submitted globally) for EyeEm and The Huffington Post's mission — Pollution in My World.
Please read below for official statements, announcements, and links from EyeEm and The Huffington Post.
"Pollution is all around us. Air, land and sea are all victims to this global problem.
Our environmentally-friendly community helped us out and captured fantastic images of pollution and its causes for this moving mission. The best photos will appear in the Moving Image series on The Huffington Post, as well as in Huffington, the iPad Magazine."
"We hear about pollution constantly, causing health problems, killing wildlife and harming ecosystems. But what does it look like up close, in our cities and neighborhoods?
We asked photographers at EyeEm to share their photos of pollution everywhere. The responses we got were extremely varied -- to you, pollution doesn't just mean the degradation of air and water. It also means throwing trash on the ground, filling landfills with waste and pumping carbon dioxide into the atmosphere.
Here are just a few of our favorites from the thousands that were submitted."
