Water, as seen by 100 Canadian photographers. David Suzuki describes water as a sacred, precious, life-giving liquid. Canada is a land rich in water with more than 18 percent of the planet's fresh water in the Great Lakes alone. We use it and abuse it. In 2004, Photosensitive invited 100 Canadian photographers to capture their vision of water, to create pictures that would connect us all. The result is an exhibition of black-and-white photographs that will force you to think about the value water brings to your life every day. Finally, a beautiful book was born and the exhibit opened to glowing reviews in Toronto in September 2005, before going on tour to five Canadian cities. Today, Andrew Stawicki says that when he looks through the Life of Water book, the photographs still make him think.
