With no cell phones and no TV or radio programmes being broadcasted, Green Bank, West Virginia is home to the National Radio "Quiet Zone" created in the 1950s as a place for scientists to explore the universe with highly sensitive radio telescopes. Since then they've been searching for traces of extraterrestrial life. The people, who now call this place home, could not be more different. A place where scientists meet settlers and bear hunters. And in recent years the "wi-fi refugees" who relocate here to flee electromagnetic radiation created by our modern society.

Paul Kranzler (A) and Andrew Phelps (A/USA) spent many weeks in 2015 in and around the small town of Green Bank, WV and the Green Bank Observatory documenting this unique community of scientists, electromagnetic hypersensitives and local families who earn their livelihood with bear hunting and maple syrup harvesting.
The resulting book THE DRAKE EQUATION shows a natural landscape, interspersed with grotesque looking, huge telescopes. And it shows people, in whose bodies and attitudes the life in the Green Bank "Pocahontas Valley" reflects.

ANDREW PHELPS graduated from Arizona State University in Fine Art Photography after studying at Salzburg College as well.

PAUL KANZLER graduated from a Postgraduate Master Class with Prof. Joachim Brohm, Academy of Visual Arts HGB Leipzig.
