Visual artist Jeff Rich explores the complex intersections of ecology, politics, economics, recreation and the dynamic impacts of contemporary culture on the environment in his work - Watershed. His photographic research builds a poetic visual narrative that documents the effects of development and exploitation within the rich Southern landscape. His project “Watershed: A Survey of The French Broad River” was awarded the 2010 Critical Mass Book Award, and was published as a monograph in 2012. His work has been featured in Fraction Magazine and Photo-Eye Photographer’s Showcase. In spring 2017 Fall Line Press will publish his second book “Watershed: The Tennessee River”. His ongoing research includes work on the largest watershed in North America along the Mississippi River, as well as a project on the city of Erwin, home to Nuclear Fuel Services - a company processing used radioactive uranium and plutonium with a history of accidents and spills.
