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.
