Lives on the Line is a photographic and multimedia documentary project focusing on local residents resisting the Mariner East 2 pipeline. The project builds on a previous photo essay, Climbing Trees to Save the World published by WagingNonviolence.org in June, 2017.
The project combines environmental portraiture and photojournalism capturing portraits of residents and photojournalistic images of their work. Portraits will be made at locations of significance to participants such as homes, schools, parks, libraries, offices and other places of public use impacted by construction, or risk of leak or explosion. Photojournalistic images may include details of people engaged in protest, pipeline equipment and landscape photography of impacted areas.
