Boomtown U.S.A. with Al Jazeera America

I recently worked up in Williston, North Dakota, on assignment for Al Jazeera America. Writer Wilson Dizard and I explored the effects of falling oil prices on the community. To see the full stories, please take a look at "Slowdown and out in Williston, ND" and "Optimism running on empty for African immigrants lured by oil dreams". The photographs below are some of my favorites from the trip.
