All rivers are ever changing. From moment to moment, day to day, season to season, rivers are continually transformed as water levels rise and fall, the current changes speeds and the light changes from sunrise to sunset and from summer to winter. The Chattahoochee River Study project is an exploration of the evolving patterns, shapes, tones, textures and colors created by one section of one river as the river paints its own almost abstract canvases, continually creating new images to be captured as unique moments in time.
The Chattahoochee River begins in the North Georgia Mountains and runs the length of Georgia into portions of Alabama and Florida, eventually spilling into the Gulf of Mexico. My photographs concentrate on an approximately two mile section of the river inside the Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area in Atlanta. I have photographed this same stretch of the river over and over in all seasons, time of day and weather, always finding unique images even when photographing at the exact same location.
