Oil and Water

I have currently been investigating the relationship of “Oil and Water” (2014-Present). This work looks at communities that live in the shadow of oil:  California places like Richmond, Manhattan Beach, and Hermosa Beach.

(The latter has the distinction of being within 12 miles of three different oil refineries—Chevron, Exxon Mobil and the recently closed BP/Arco).
