Standing Rock Camps

Standing Rock Camps by Cyrene Krey
Two of the camps at Standing Rock, adjacent to the Cannonball River, where people gathered in opposition to the Dakota Access Pipeline. Friend and journalist, Winifred Bird, and myself went there in mid-November 2016 as the final leg of our journey to travel the length of the pipeline’s route to survey for ourselves what natural areas were being placed at risk.
Super Moon at Standing Rock by Cyrene Krey
The night we arrived was the night of the super moon. Everyone in the camps took a moment about of their busy work to appreciate the sight.

I learned a lot from this experience and challenged my photography along the way. More of the photos from this project are available on my website at www.cyrenekrey.com. My co-pilot and I published a brief photo essay about our trip on Sierra Magazine’s website. More of Winifred Bird’s journalism can be accessed at her website, www.winifredbird.com.

I encourage everyone to continue fighting for better energy alternatives and clean water for all. I’m grateful to the people of Standing Rock who were welcoming and enthusiastic about this project.
