New Work Water the Essential
Water is the most important resource we have. It is in every cell of every living organism on this planet, not just the 7.7 Billion humans. By focusing on water we create an awareness of life itself and what it means to all of us. The purity and sources of water are integral to our own DNA and the very means with which we sustain our existence. Water is our food, water is our environment and water is the essential element of our body itself.
Water the Essential is a book project that explores the purity and majesty of water and its life giving properties, for plant, animals and humans. The narrative is about finding the source of water from the peaks of the mountains right through to the street fountains.
Now and in the future wars will be fought over water, and it is time for people to be aware of how valuable it is. The style of the photos distils the very element of water down to its simplest form. In doing so it evokes a spiritual relationship that man has with water and the essential nature of life. While we take advantage of the abundant supply of water, clean sources, are indeed precious and rare.
