Erin Brockovich Town

September 1st, 2012

I was just backing-up my image archive and thought I’d share some of my editorial assignments.  This shoot was December 17, 2010, for a British newspaper.

 

In the year 2000, the small town of Hinkley shot to international attention with the release of Erin Brockovich – the movie starring Julia Roberts that dramatised the town’s battle over its contaminated water supply. Now the community of fewer than 2,000 people in California’s Mojave Desert are fighting again to try to stop history repeating itself.
