The exhibition was organized by the Annenberg Foundation in partnership with National Geographic.
Imagery by a selection of National Geographic photographers examines the local and global challenges of our planet’s dwindling freshwater resources grouped into six major themes. These include “Sacred Waters,” looking at humankind’s inspirational relationship with water and celebrating how precious this resource is to all life on the planet; “The Big Melt,” examining the environmental challenges of Tibet’s freshwater resource; “Parting the Waters,” showing how countries are working together to adapt to the drastic reduction in water levels in the Jordan River basin; “The Burden of Thirst,” presenting issues facing African women and children who are responsible for delivering the freshwater needs for their families; “California’s Pipe Dream,” surveying California’s vast water infrastructure, thirsty crops, rampant development, and threats to the fragile Sacramento Delta; and “Silent Streams,” looking at the challenges facing freshwater species and how scientists hope to save them.
