FOTOFEST2004 - WATER
March 12 - April 12, 2004
Throughout the world, freshwater supplies are threatened with contamination and over-use. The world is now using 52 percent of the available fresh Water. Water consumption is growing at twice the rate of population. Yet 1.2 billion people still do not have access to clean Water.
Water is one of the principal determinants of human survival and economic development. As the basis for all organic life, Water is also an essential part of spiritual practice throughout the world and an important catalyst for creative expression.
"If there is magic on this planet, it is contained in Water." - Dr. Loren Eiseley The Immense Journey, 1946
