FOR CROP DUSTERS, OIL BOOM PRESENTS OBSTACLES, DANGER
At 26, Grant Swartz has spent much of the last decade in the air, as an agriculture pilot dusting crops over rural Glasscock County. That’s been long enough to see the oil and gas boom drastically alter the landscape of his community east of Midland. What was once a simple flight is now an obstacle course peppered with rigs, miles and miles of power lines and crews of oilfield workers on the ground. To do his job, Swartz must at times fly as low as 5 feet above ground — and he can’t release chemicals around people. These obstacles have complicated his job and at times prevented him from even doing it.
Mother Falcon Tour Diary
In June 2014, Mother Falcon drove over 7,500 miles around the midwest and East Coast, spent approximately 120 hours in vans and performed 23 times in some of America's greatest (and not so greatest) venues. I documented the entire tour using five GoPros. Big thanks to Melanie McLean, Julia Maehner, and Michelle Mueller for shooting the shows in Chicago, New York and Austin.
