Check Out Earth’s ‘Water Stories’ in Pictures

Vancouver exhibit on how global issues are reflected in our most precious resource.

Mustafah Abdulaziz has made a long-term project of photographing the global water crisis.

“Across the planet, we’re seeing a lot of our issues reflected in the resource of water,” said Abdulaziz in the video above by WaterAid.

His project has taken him everywhere from China, India, to Pakistan. Abdulaziz believes photography is the best way of communicating the scarcity of clean water in some parts of the world to those who have more privileged access to the resource.

Abdulaziz’s images have been displayed at waterfronts in Stockholm, London, and New York. The video above is from the New York exhibition.

Now, the exhibition has made it to Vancouver. “Water Stories: The global water crisis in pictures” is on display the Jack Poole Plaza at the Vancouver Convention Centre until July 24. More info here.

The project is a collaboration with Earthwatch, WaterAid, and WWF, and is supported by the HSBC Water Programme.
