These photographs highlight the small waterfalls found throughout western and south-central Ohio. The intent was simply to capture the beauty of these wonderful water features and convey the peaceful, calming effect one feels watching and listening to the movement of the water. As I worked, I was reminded of the power of the waters I was photographing, to both sustain and to take life. Given the issues with access to fresh water in many parts of the world today these images allude to the power of water, molding its own courses over time. However, here the water is in balance, neither too much nor too little, either extreme yields deadly consequences. I hope this series also advocates for the protection of these areas of natural beauty and aids in the dialogue of protecting water sources both here and around the world.
