Words for Water to feature at PondyPHOTO 2016

Some work from Words for Water is going to be presented at PondyPHOTO 2016 in Pondicherry, India as part of a paper by Maya Kóvskaya titled Learning to Drown in the Anthropocene: Climate Change and Cultural Change, Photography, Public Art and the Politics of Water.

It is fantastic to be a part of this exciting program and a big thanks to Maya for sharing the Words for Water project. I have been thinking a lot about doing a chapter of Words for Water in India so it is great to see this work being featured.

Here are some details on the event:

PondyPHOTO, a biennale festival initiated by PondyART, is a platform where art and education attempt to break existing social barriers, by presenting visually impactful photography-oriented events focused on today’s social and environmental issues in public spaces.

The theme for PondyPHOTO 2016 is WATER.

Here is some documentation from some different chapters of Words for Water.

Recent additions to this body of work have quite literally be more reflective in tone and topic.
