Photo project documents rivers of the interior U.S.

Sep 11, 2013 at 10:00 GMT

Jeff Rich's photo project started at the French Broad river outside of Asheville, North Carolina. Since then, 'Watershed Project' has taken him to the Tennessee River and now the Mississippi in an effort to document and raise awareness of the safekeeping of these rivers. He tells Wired's Raw File of the project, "I’ve had to be careful about setting some boundaries," keeping the scope of his project limited to the aspects relating to stewardship, pollution and control of the rivers. The resulting images are arresting reminders of the beauty - and vulnerability - of some of the U.S.'s great waterways.
