“A Crude World” is a behind the scenes investigation of the oil industry. Paolo Woods (photographs), Serge Enderlin and Serge Michel (texts), have been out in the field exploring the new world order of oil. Travelling from the ice-locked platforms of Siberia to the burning deserts of Iraq, from the tycoon’s air-conditioned offices in Houston to the miserable oilfields of Baku, from the endless steppe of Kazakhstan to the shantytowns of Angola, they have following new pipelines through the lawless valleys of Georgia and shopped with the “oligarchs” in Dubai. Covering 12 countries in 4 continents they focused on areas that are, or will be, the new production hubs and the pivoting points in the precarious oil equilibrium. Indeed, the world is more thirsty than ever for oil and America, the thirstiest of all, no longer trusts Saudi Arabia to quench it’s crude dependency, so the hunt for new sources is open. “A Crude World” follows the routes of the black gold, revealing dramatic and fascinating stories that are too often left untold.
