photo cred: Danny Lyon
Burn Zone, is Danny Lyon’s newest published work. Burn Zone is a Cri de Coeur directed at the artist community and our youth asking them to join the fight to save planet Earth. In it, photographer and filmmaker Danny Lyon, tells the story of his return to New Mexico after thirty years and the dramatic changes caused there by the use of fossil fuels. Illustrated with new black and white photos and including a list of fifty climate criminals, prepared by the climate activist Josephine Ferorelli. Each listed member of government, or the academy, has received massive amounts of money from the fossil fuel industry, in order to lie, and undermine any affective democratic action to save the planet. These are serious criminals in our midst, on the level of those charged with genocide during the Nuremberg trials. One of them has been nominated for Vice President of the United States.
