DOCUMERICA (1971-1977): Photographer – LeRoy Woodson, Birmingham, Alabama, USA.


A COMMUNITY IN NORTH BIRMINGHAM, THE AREA OF THE CITY MOST BADLY EFFECTED BY POLLUTION FROM THE STEEL PLANTS. THE NORTH BIRMINGHAM PIPE PLANT IS ADJACENT. THE PLANT HAS NO CHIMNEY TO LIFT THE SMOKE TO A HIGHER ALTITUDE. OFTEN THE SMOKE BLANKETS THE COMMUNITY. AT TIMES IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO SEE AHEAD MORE THAN A FEW FEET, 07/1972
