As part of a larger exploration of water issues throughout the United States, artists Lauren Bon, Richard Nielsen, and Tristan Duke brought their monumental camera built from
a shipping container to the Great Lakes Region to engage local communities in conversations about water and power. Created in collaboration with citizens of Detroit, the exhibition features larger-than-life photographic portraits and choral recordings of songs about water, telling a story which is both local and global, highlighting water as a human right.

Los Angeles based Metabolic Studio is devoted to exploring photography as a socio-environmental practice.
