Gulf oil spill, one year later, at Seattle Aquarium

| No Comments

newyorker_spill_mag.pngDaniel Beltrá is an award-winning Spanish nature photographer who now lives in West Seattle. A year ago, on assignment for Greenpeace, he spent two months taking pictures of the Gulf of Mexico as nearly five million gallons of oil from the Deepwater Horizon spill started to spread. "I witnessed firsthand the largest marine oil spill in history," Beltrá says.

From the 27,000 images shot at 3,000 feet above the water, 16 have been selected for an exhibit titled SPILL that goes up at the Seattle Aquarium on April 20th. One of Beltrá's dramatic aerial images was published last month to illustrate "The New Yorker's" exhaustive analysis of the the spill.

If you go: the Seattle Aquarium is on Pier 59, 1483 Alaskan Way. (206) 386-4300.
Admission for non-members is $19 for adults, $12 for youth under 13. Beltrá will give a talk on May 5th (additional $10). The exhibit runs until August 7th.
