What: Photographer Adam Nadel discusses his project Getting the Water Right
For the month of February, photographer Adam Nadel will be working at the intersections of journalism, art, science, and human rights. Nadel explains, “I have sought ways to inspire viewers visually, introducing them to worlds and realities they might not have otherwise considered. My belief is that aesthetics are a powerful and successful entry point for educating people; beauty no just for beauty’s sake, but as a tool to excite and inform.”
The residency will be the final stage in Mr. Nadel’s project titled Getting the Water Right, a museum exhibition that documents the people and landscape of the Greater Everglades Watershed. Nadel has already crisscrossed the Greater Everglades Watershed to document how politics, culture, economy, and ecology have dynamically interacted, and often collided, to push the Everglades ecosystem to the edge of collapse.
“I have not yet spent any time in Everglades National Park as I wanted to leave the reason behind my project, the preservation [and] what remains of the Everglades eco‐system, to last.” “The Artist in Residence in Everglades will allow me to document the natural splendor of the Everglades landscape, the beauty of its native species, and the invasive animals and plants that threaten the ecosystem.”
