Dina Kantor Photographs the Demise of Treece, Kansas:

“The residents of Treece asked the state and federal government for help. Now, the entire town, which is included in Tar Creek, the largest E.P.A. Superfund site in the United States, is in the final stages of a government-funded relocation program. Over the past year, Treece’s residents slowly moved away, and their homes were sold or demolished. The water tower was purchased at auction, the roads were torn up, and the landscape is hardly recognizable. Ultimately, I want my photographs to serve as an archive of the community, a document of its transformation, and an investigation into the environmental and economic impact of past practices on both individuals and the landscape.”
