Right in our own backyard, the Colorado River is the focus of a stunning piece of work from photographer Peter McBride. The Colorado River: Flowing Through Conflict book was released last fall, and now we're welcoming the film version of the project, Chasing Water, to this year's festival.
The project took McBride three years, documenting the river by land and by air.
Outside Magazine has an exclusive interview with McBride where he shares more about the project and what his hopes are for his work:
I think my most objective goal is to create a conversation. I'm not a water lawyer. I'm not a water engineer. I don't consider myself an expert. I'm just a curious person that followed a beautiful river. The goal for me would just be awareness—to get peple to stop and go, Wow, Really? I didn't know the river stopped. How did this happen? Let's fix this.
