When he first saw the book “Money Power Respect,” it was a source of pride. He enjoyed the recognition. Now, when Andy looks at the photographs of him as a child, he mainly thinks of his daughter: “I see all the troubles my family went through,” he said. “I don’t want my daughter to go through that.”

I was an 18 year-old kid from the sticks who had discovered photography a couple of years before. It seemed like a chance at a little adventure. But those few days in upstate New York were when I started to realize that photography could be something else, something more. Eddie Adams, and the people he brought to the workshop, valued substance and convictions. They spoke of commitment. They believed photographs had great power. I brought that good advice with me right back to the sticks.

This body of work – spanning 11 years and 14 countries – explores the intimate relationship between humanity and its most vital natural resource. Blackmore’s photographs poignantly illustrate the unfolding drama of the global water crisis and how it is affecting those caught up in it; a billion people without access to clean water, another four billion without an adequate supply. Against this dire backdrop, the work also celebrates our primal and spiritual bond with nature’s essential resource.
