"Death Alley"is a semi-abstract distillation of how surfing is connected to environmental racism through the toxic manufacturing of Neoprene, the base material for wetsuits.

The images depict Denka Performance Elastomers facility near Reserve, Louisiana, the sole US producer of chloroprene rubber (Neoprene), the surrounding community and oneiric surfing images.

Exploring “environmental racism”, the work focuses on the impact of this plant on the local community who suffer the highest risk and rate of cancer in the US due to extreme emission levels of chloroprene.
