15-26 September – Brisbane Southbank


Since 2011, American photographer Mustafah Abdulaziz has travelled the world for his long-term photographic project on water. His powerful images convey the effects of the global water crisis on people and the environment, and how better management and protection of water sources can strengthen communities, and underpin development.

Mr Abdulaziz says: “Water is one of the great challenges of our time. Across the planet we are seeing our fundamental relationship with water called into question…it is my hope that this exhibition may, irrespective of our borders, remind us that we must address this challenge as one and work towards coexistence with our environment, as much for individual benefit as our collective gain. Our future depends on our understanding; water hangs in the balance.”

The images will then be shown for the first time in Brisbane from 15 September– 26 September 2017. The exhibition is being supported in Brisbane by The International River Foundation and Brisbane City and can be viewed at the Southbank, Lower Boardwalk, The Clem Jones Promenade.

The Water Stories project is a collaboration with EarthwatchWaterAid and WWF, and is supported by the HSBC Water Programme
