Water State

In 1977, Congress passed the Clean Water Act to force polluters to disclose the toxins they dump into waterways and to give regulators the power to fine or jail offenders. States have passed pollution statutes, but in recent years, violations of the Clean Water Act have risen steadily across the nation. This project is not about corporate manipulation; rather I am bringing awareness to how complicit we are in making these sites ourselves.

122 Locations is what the final number ended with. Now I need to find the most efficient route and I am ready to go.

This is where I left off on this project in May(my senior show at MCAD). Frames made by Jake Dwyer. After school was let out I had no access to a medium format camera and a mountain of personal debt as well as student loans. After working for 6 months I have my debt paid, student loans are under control, a medium format camera all to myself, my van is all tuned up, a new more detailed list of CWA locations and 109 rolls of film. Let the games begin.
