matchstick men
the story of the land and the people who loved, laughed, struggled, fought and crossed the river before us.
It’s interesting to observe people watching rivers particularly from the waterline. As the water runs from the lens they appear like Lowry’s matchistck men looking down from on high but never really seeing what is beneath the surface. Our freshwater ecosystems are losing species and habitats faster than any other type of ecosystem and in this age of dam building and river engineering, what is the story that we are leaving behind: what will the river say of us?
