Hydrological explorations - Rob de Loe

Hydrological explorations

Water has been a central focus in my academic work for over three decades. In turning my focus towards the intersection of art and science, through the medium of photography, I've naturally chosen water as an early focus.

Hydrologists and water managers take for granted how complex water is. They understand that flooding is a natural phenomenon, and that the water that flows in a stream during the summer can be largely or entirely provided by underground sources. People who haven't been trained in the science of water don't necessarily understand these mysteries.

Can art open the door to conversations about the science of water that lead to better understanding? In these hydrological explorations, I'm exploring this larger question.

These are works in progress.
