This project was created with the same spirit that america was founded on. Our intentions are to connect everyone in america through the lens of this camera and social networking sites. We can't do this without you. We want to tell your story and show your city or town through photographs of you, and people you know. As we travel around america looking for people and places to shoot you will be able to keep track of where we are going and help us decide where we go next. Join us in our journey by liking our facebook to get yourself photographed by us.
An extra special thanks to Brandon Rein, Scotty Hoffman and Trevor Atwater.

Flooded McDonald's is a film work in which a convincing life-size replica of the interior of a McDonald's burger bar, without any customers or staff present, gradually floods with water. Furniture is lifted up by the water, trays of food and drinks start to float around, electrics short circuit and eventually the space becomes completely submerged.
Flooded McDonald's is a film by Superflex. Produced by Propeller Group (Ho Chi Minh City) in association with Matching Studio (Bangkok) and co-produced by the South London Gallery, the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art (Denmark) and Oriel Mostyn Gallery (Wales) with generous support from the Danish Film Institute.

The first steps on a long road ….
Michael Hall is an award-winning Australian based photographer. He was voted European Photographer of the Year by the Federation of European Photographers in 2006 and was a Hasselblad Masters Finalist in 2009.
Following a near-fatal cycling accident in 2007, Michael decided to re-evaluate his work, and embarked on an ambitious personal project: to document the causes and effects of climate change throughout the world.
Michael now devotes his life to highlighting the impact of climate change and the damage we are all doing to our planet, and to showing how we are able to mitigate that damage by implementing carbon-neutral technologies. He plans to spread his message through a series of exhibitions, books and speaking events that showcase his beautiful, yet tragic imagery.
As the world’s governments drive economies with fossil fuels such as oil, coal and gas, big business in turn dictates governments’ policies. Together, they are driving the human race and all species further toward an unprecedented man-made disaster.
Australia exports more coal than any other nation, and burns more coal per head of population than any other country. Sadly, 2009 figures show that Australia’s CO2 output of 20.58 tonnes per person has now overtaken America’s 19.78 tonnes output. There is no sign of this figure reducing in the future.
The environment is the fundamental basis of all things, and is essential to our survival. Yet, the need to change our profligate burning of carbon, while understood by many, is being upheld by so few. Human-induced global warming is the key factor in the severity of Australia’s recent drought. As the driest habitable continent, it’s no surprise that Australia is one of the first to feel the impact of climate change on its natural drought cycle.
