Thanks to Lucinda Merritt and the Ichetucknee Alliance for posting the information on the up-coming event by Dr. Lesley Gamble and John Moran, “Our Water, Our Future”.
The photographs and the accompanying text (poetry in itself) by this team are totally outstanding and certainly worth the trip from wherever you are.
Coming up Nov. 18, 2014, at Florida Gateway College in Lake City–spread the word!
OUR WATER, OUR FUTURE
A program with John Moran and Lesley Gamble
Co-Directors of the Springs Eternal Project
Tuesday, Nov. 18th at Florida Gateway College
Wilson S. Rivers Library and Media Center
Light refreshments at 4:30 p.m. Program at 5 p.m.
As our springs go, so goes Florida.
Although vital to the ecological, social and economic health of our state, Florida’s springs are imperiled—due to pollution, neglect and the groundwater demands of a thirsty state.
Once a source of awe, our springs are now a source of deep concern.
Join us for an engaging look at these windows into the aquifer with Springs Eternal Project creators John Moran and Lesley Gamble.
Moran has been photographing the springs of Florida for more than 30 years, and artist and art historian Dr. Gamble brings expertise in place-based eco-art projects. They joined forces in 2012 with designer Rick Kilby to create the Springs Eternal Project.
Their collaboration fills museum walls, wraps city buses and continues to develop creative forms of educational outreach inspiring Floridians to value, conserve and restore our precious waters.
John Moran is a nature photographer whose work is a deep meditation on water and Florida’s future. Florida author and scholar Gary Mormino, retired director of the Florida Studies Program at the University of South Florida, says, “If Florida had a Photographer Laureate, John Moran should hold that title.”
