Jeff Rich’s work focuses on water issues ranging from recreation and sustainability to exploitation and abuse. Rich explores these subjects by using long-term photographic documentations of very specific regions of the United States. In the Watershed Project, Jeff Rich highlights the relationship between land, water, and man within the Mississippi River watershed (which includes the French Broad River and the Tennessee River), the largest watershed in North America. A common misconception of a watershed is that it’s all about the water. While water does play a large part, the land plays an even larger role by directing the water to a common point, such as a river or ocean. Thus, human impact on the land directly affects the water that runs over it. Through documenting these rivers, its citizens, and environs, Rich’s goal is to bring attention to the importance of the growing sustainability movement in this watershed and beyond.
This exhibition is sponsored in part by the UNF Environmental Center.
