Over the next year I will be shooting a portfolio of images to help raise awareness (& funds) for a charity working on the escalating water crisis in the Owens Valley of Eastern California. Bounded by the Sierras on one side and the Inyo Mountains / Death Valley on the other, the Owens River has ever decreasing water levels, thanks to decreased snow fall in the mountains. The river is also a major source of water for the city of Los Angeles, where consumption is going up. I will be compiling images celebrating the natural landscapes, man made landscapes and people of the valley.
The website that we will be using to promote the photographs is still in a testing stage but it would be great to get any comments before we start to publicize the site. Thanks!
