The Annenberg Space for Photography Fresh Water Exhibit Features Photographs by SSU Professor

The Annenberg Space for Photography recognizes Earth Day with a one-day special presentation slideshow at their ongoing Fresh Water Exhibit, featuring photographs by Laura Watt, assistant professor, Environmental Studies at Sonoma State University. 30 of Watt's photographs will accompany photos by 19 other photographers on Thurs., April 22 from 7-9 p.m., at The Annenberg Space for Photography in Los Angeles.

The exhibit, presented in conjunction with National Geographic, and coinciding with their April issue "Water: Our Thirsty World," features the work of award-winning photographers, looking at Earth's most precious resource from environmental, social, political and cultural perspectives.

"It's a huge honor to have my work included in such a prestigious venue," said Watt.

While the exhibit runs through June 13, this one-day special slideshow event hosts two 7'x14' screens, with the photographs of Watt and other photographers projected in a continuous loop as visitors of the exhibit are invited to view the night's addition for their Earth Day celebration.
