Historical Context:
"Rediscovering the Grand: A photographic collaboration and exploration of the Grand River and its watershed" - This collaboration is between photographers Nathan Abramowksi and Jason Rutter. The catalyst of this visual exploration comes from living and working near the banks of this river and the ever-present conversations about the threats that our fresh water resources face. The goal of the project is to document the river and its watershed in photographs that show the natural beauty of the river, while illustrating the complexity of the relationship between man and river. The collaborative spirit goes beyond artists working together and includes the involvement of experts in the field of water resource management and watershed studies.
