Photojournalism Daily: Nov. 24, 2014

Today’s daily Photojournalism Links collection highlights Fritz Hoffman's work on America's major hazardous waste sites, known as Superfund sites. The Superfund program is a government initiative that was created in 1980 to address the nation's most environmentally toxic locations after a scandal at Love Canal. There are more than 1,700 of these sites and, despite more than $40 billion of taxpayer money spent on cleanup efforts, at least 1,300 of them are reportedly still contaminated. Around one in six Americans, or some 49 million people, live within three miles of these sites, often without ever realizing it. Hoffman's photographs offer a compelling look at this environmental issue.
