Western Wyoming Community College’s Art Gallery is currently displaying Water Study: The Progression, by Western’s photography instructor, Hank Ketelsen, until March 11, 2021. The exhibition is open for public viewing during the College’s normal operating hours.
The photographs in Water Study: The Progression are meant to examine the interface between the Savannah River and the community of Savannah, Georgia. The photographer used water samples from the Savannah River in the darkroom process. The water is mixed with developer and poured over exposed photographic paper. The water then develops images of the human-made alterations that have displaced and overrun the river.
