Earth Day Banner, 1970, New York City
My Earth Day Banner photo taken in New York City during the first Earth Day in 1970 was featured in Contami-Nation!, a 30 minute educational PBS documentary about water contamination made in conjunction with Arizona State University. My photo appears at 2 minutes, 28 seconds but be sure to watch the entire video, it is filled with important information and data about worldwide water and air contamination and how researchers at Arizona State University are studying this problem and finding solutions.
This documentary was nominated for an Emmy in 2015 and Best Institutional/Instructional Documentary Rocky Mountain Region. It won the Telly Award, Bronze, 2015, Social Responsibility Category.
It was written, produced, shot and edited by Kirk Davis for OKED with Jennifer Berky, Assistant Editing and additional Photography and Timelapses by Alexander D. Chapin
Please be aware of how contaminants continue to change the EARTH this Earth Day, April 22, and every day and do your part to stop pollution.
