Portland Photographer Captures The Art Of Oil Pollution

Portlander Kevin Coulton is on a crusade to bring awareness to oil runoff through photography, one drip at a time.

When it rains, Coulton heads out with his camera and orange safety cone. He’s on the lookout for small splotches of oil, left by passing vehicles.

Framing the swirling drips in colorful close-up, Kevin hopes to bring greater public awareness to oil pollution.
