Inhaltsangabe: Arctic Oil: Photographs of Alaska s North Slope introduces readers to a remote region north of the Arctic Circle. Only the Native peoples who lived there for centuries and the small workforce that keeps Alaska s mammoth oil fields producing had previously known the area. Judy Patrick s photographs now bring this secret corner of the world to the public eye. Images of ice roads and ice islands built for winter exploration lie next to images of year-round production complexes hauled north by barge, and page turns reveal the faces of roughnecks on drill rigs. The melding of pristine Alaska and modern industry in each image make this book is a unique and intriguing compilation. Taken over two decades, these photographs showcase Alaska s North Slope oil industry from the massive Prudhoe Bay field to the National Petroleum Reserve-Alaska and beyond. Few people beyond those who work there get to see what Alaska s oil industry looks like, but Alaskan photographer Judy Patrick brings it to life for those of us who will never make the trek north.
Über den Autor: Judy Patrick was born in 1959 in Southern California, and decided to be a photographer when she was twelve years old. Her first real photo job was in Wasilla, Alaska as the darkroom technician at The Frontiersman, where she became that newspaper s first staff photographer in 1982. During the mid-1980s she spent the winter in Arizona and landed a job photographing industrial scenes. After returning to Alaska in the summer of 1987, she started photographing the DMTS road construction project north of Kotzebue. One thing led to another and soon she was shooting for another contractor in Prudhoe Bay. Over time she began taking pictures for most of the oilfield service and oil companies, and continues to do so to this day. She currently lives and works in Alaska.
