Empty Ladders

Greg Fitz with a mind-numbing representation of the dystopian state of salmon in Washington.

The videos are well made and the footage is wonderful, but the first thing I thought of when I saw the photos was the original Bladerunner. In the movie, characters travel through a dark, dystopian future Los Angeles while giant, brightly colored advertising videos play on huge screens. As much as I appreciated the efforts of the Locks to communicate science and natural history in a compelling way, I couldn’t help but dread a future of empty concrete raceways and slow-motion footage of beautiful, chrome fish who used to return there.
