Arid Waters is a photographic response to the growing crisis of water scarcity which exists because our culture thinks of water as a commodity, or an abstract legal right, rather than the most basic physical source of life. The Water in the West Project began as a collaborative effort to present an artistic response to water as a social issue. Photographic historian Ellen Manchester has written an informative introduction that provides a historical perspective on the project. Photographers inluded in the project are Mark Klett, Terry Evans, Laurie Brown, Peter Goin, Robert Dawson, Martin Stupich, Gregory Conniff, and Wanda Hammerbeck.
