Description: 

This project was a photographic body of work depicting the entirety of the Susquehanna River from it’s beginning in Cooperstown, New York to it’s end in the researcher's hometown of Havre de Grace, Maryland. The photographs depicted a personal exploration of the entire length of the river and a personal pursuit in understanding the complexity of its journey. The river is very important to our country’s history and very important to the health and well being of millions of people in our region. Water is a precious commodity now and people are calling it “the new gold”. Clean water is so crucial to life and people in America need to be taking a closer look at the sources that provide their water and understand the effect that humans are having on our waterways.

The project culminated in a Senior Thesis exhibition of work with 15 images as well as a book of the entire project. The book is a hard bound 116 page professional book published by Blurb and is available for purchase by the public on their website.
