This modest  blog, is  run by Gary Sauer-Thompson,   as a  background, or side project   to the photographic project that is tentatively entitled Our Waters. The project  is designed and curated  by Lars Heldmann as  a contemporary response by selected photographers to specific  images in the  Harry Godson Collection  in  the State Library of South Australia. 

The Our Waters project  is an exploration of collaborative art practice, where the artists involved in the project experiment with using multi-layered collaborative processes that traverse geographical and cultural boundaries. Within this framework, the artists reflect on the history of the current land occupation, the  use of water.

The blog uses Gary’s archival photos of the River Murray to help  him  think through how his   art photography  could contribute to the Our Waters project  within  anthropogenic climate change in Australia.
