Outsourced Jobs and Poisoned Water

Outsourced Jobs and Poisoned Water

The Wilson Quarterly has just published “Outsourced Jobs and Poisoned Water: An American Town Fights For Survival,” by London-based journalist Caitlin Randall. I contributed photographs. The story chronicles the efforts of a fading mill town, Hoosick Falls, N.Y., to revive its economy, only to learn that its municipal water supply and scores of private wells were contaminated with a suspected carcinogen, PFOA.

Randall’s piece appears in a themed issue of the Quarterly, The Decline of the American Middle Class. http://bit.ly/hoosickfalls The photos posted here are outtakes from the assignment.

  1. Photos excellent. Love to see more. Finally renewed my membership at the new ICP in the Bowery. Mixed feelings. The ghost of Robert Capa has been excised.
