Barraclough Takes His Virtual Photo Shoots to Saudi Arabia

[ Posted: May 03, 2021 ]


With the inventive new “virtual photo shoots” that Keith Barraclough is currently conducting from his home in New York, there really is no limit to how far away you can go (well OK, provided that there is Internet coverage). One of Keith’s most recent shoots, for example, was made all the way out in the Arabian/Persian Gulf of Saudi Arabia. The subjects: Hal Fravel, Jen Weaver, and Phil Bambach, three environmental scientists on a mission to document and ensure proper ecological restoration. Keith explains:

“Hal and his team travel to Saudi Arabia twice a year to conduct sampling at established monitoring sites on intertidal habitats along the Arabian Gulf that were damaged by the oil spill that was a result of the 1991 Gulf War. They record information on annual and perennial vegetation, crabs, snails, salinity, oiling conditions, and other key parameters to see how effective ecological restoration has been on these impacted sites. The data helps to inform what types of restoration methods were effective and what could be used for future restoration projects.”

Where might Keith’s virtual shoots go next? (We’re secretly hoping for a portrait series on the International Space Station!)
