What is BP Hiding from the World?

Mikeya asked fellow Lockergnome members if they feel that the oil spill is worse than what is being reported. It’s funny that I ran across that question today. My good friend and photographer Kris Krug just wrapped up a week down in the Gulf. He was photographing the oil spill from the air for the TEDxOilSpill Expedition, a project that aimed to collect first-hand information for presentation at a conference scheduled for June 28 in Washington D.C. Kris was also taking photographs for National Geographic.

According to Kris, we cannot begin to imagine the scope of this tragedy. ““It looks likes dirty dishwater in some places, with that rainbow, reflective sheen,” Krug recalled. “It looks like sewage sludge in others, where rusty-coloured orange and brown and black sludge is bubbling up from the bottom.” KK believes fully that BP is busy blocking true press access to the devastation. ““Every time we showed up anywhere, we were approached by guys in badges, asking us who were, what we were doing, and telling us to not cross this line or that line.”

You can find all of Kris’ stunning pictures taken down in the Gulf on his Flickr pages, including the above embedded photo.
