On a recent trip to NY, Kevin Twomey visited a photography gallery. What he saw inspired him to write a blog post. And, take a very short shower.
“When I go to NY I always try to visit some of the popular photography galleries. While on business there back in October, I was lucky enough to catch Edward Burtynsky’s new project, Water, showing at the Howard Greenbeg Gallery. Along with the still imagery, he collaborated with Jennifer Baichwal on a film, Watermark, that finally made its way into selected theaters on the west coast on April 18th, coinciding with the start of Earth Week. What better timing than when we have been appreciating every drop of rain that falls in CA? The breadth of perspective from Burtynsky’s imagery is monumental. I went up to Folsom Lake a couple of months ago to see the low levels of the reservoir. I stood on dry land where normally I would be 20 feel under water, and snapped a few pictures. After that, I went home and took the shortest shower of my life.”
