Watershed by Southbound Photographer Jeff Rich

The Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art in Charleston presents Watershed, a lecture by Southbound exhibition photographer Jeff Rich November 1 at 6 p.m. Rich is a South Carolina-based photographer and educator who explores water-related issues via long-term documentary projects about specific regions of the U.S. Watershed takes as its subject The French Broad River basin and The Tennessee River basin. These two waterways play important roles in the economic vitality, recreation, and quality of life of their regions, though they have also been beset by serious pollution problems. Both have been strongly impacted by industrial and governmental projects, and Rich’s photographs document the effects of this history on the landscape and the people who inhabit it.
