Water Stories: The global water crisis in pictures

Photoville, Brooklyn Bridge Plaza, New York

Begins September 21 2016
 

Since 2011, American photographer Mustafah Abdulaziz has travelled to eight countries for his long-term photographic project on water. Water Stories will include nearly 70 large-scale photographs and previously unexhibited images of the water challenge in New York as well as images from around the world including Brazil, Nigeria and China.

The first Water Stories exhibition in the international tour was shown in Stockholm in August 2015 to coincide with the 25th anniversary of World Water Week and Stockholm's Kulturfestival. This was followed by a highly successful exhibition in London in March 2016 to mark World Water Day.
