Expanding the Panama Canal was almost
as Herculean a task as building it in the first place. It’s taken nine years,
and photographer Tom Fowlks has
followed it from the start.
Fowlks’ sweeping photographs take
you right into the action. He puts you in muddy valleys overhung by cranes
and in the vast concrete caverns where millions of gallons of water will fill
and empty the new locks. You marvel at the enormity of the massive steel doors—each
weighing three or four tons—that will let freighters as long as 1,200 feet pass
through the canal.
WIRED talked to Fowlks about what it
was like covering a project for nearly a decade, how he endured the sweltering
heat, and about that crafty boat captain who tricked him.
Hi. If you are liking my shoot going on in Kingston take a look at what my good friend Tom Fowlks is doing in Panama. Panama has amazing jungles and Tom is capturing them daily on his adventure. http://thatsallfowlks.tumblr.com/
here’s 2 other shots of Chip that i really liked for the story. don’t get me wrong, i love what they chose, but i still feel strong for these 2. he just looks either so impossibly cool (up top), or like the most fun guy in hundreds of miles (down below).
that’s his work that he’s posing with in both photos. don’t know about Chip Thomas and his work … . look that sucker up!! he’s awesome!
