Transboundary Rivers Exhibition
Water is a precious resource and its value will constantly increase as time passes. Unfortunately, many of the rivers in the world face daunting challenges and countries are fighting over water-rich territories. Most conflicts and water issues involve Transboundary Rivers. In an effort to increase awareness of these global water issues, photographer Franck Vogel has created a multi-faceted photography project focusing on seven major rivers, each with its own specific set of problems. He started investigating on the Nile and its controversial Millennium Dam project in 2012. He then continued with features on the Brahmaputra in 2013, followed by the Colorado and the Jordan in 2015. The next expeditions will take place on the Mekong, the Amazon and the Ganges. For this exhibition, Franck Vogel will present 60 photos of Transboundary rivers – The Brahmaputra, The Colorado and The Nile. He will also be giving a conference on Transboundary Rivers on 16 April 2016 at 3.30pm, at Gardens by the Bay. Photo credits: The Brahmaputra ©Franck Vogel.
