Artphilein Dossier 3 - A Storyline of Oil & Gas

Exploitation of Natural Resources 02

This third Dossier is dedicated to oil and gas photo books from the Artphilein Library collection. It is part of our long-time research and collection of documentation of the exploitation of natural resources (in 2022 the first chapter was dedicated to mining of rocks, minerals and coal). By viewing the books on display, scrolling through the images of the covers of the books reproduced here with a short caption, reading Davide Monteleone’s text, looking at his photographs, as well as Marco D’Anna’s disturbing shots featured at the beginning and end of this publication, the viewer will get a much clearer idea of the many problems and risks associated with the exploitation of oil and gas.
