A note from the photographer...
The immense diversity of the topics covered in "Adelaide: Water of a City" presented a major photographic challenge, requiring images of everything from mosquito larvae to dairy cattle, water droplets to watercourses. In the process, I learned a great deal about subjects as diverse as wastewater treatment, riparian ecology, desalination and water supply engineering, and more particularly, about the challenges and opportunities facing Adelaide in achieving long-term water security. I hope my images are able to contribute, in a small way, to increasing public interest in this critical issue.
Most images were shot on Nikon DSLRs, using a range of Nikon lenses. An exception was the image used for the book's cover (see the cover on the book's webpage). I happened to be dining at St. Mark's College in North Adelaide one evening when it became clear that there was going to be a spectacular sunset. I dropped everything and made my way to Light's Vision. The only camera I had to hand was a small digital compact I keep in the glovebox, and it was that which was used to take the cover image of Colonel Light's statue.
I'm grateful to Atkins Technicolour for their very generous sponsorship of this exhibition, which included printing, matting and framing the images on display here.
I hope you enjoy them. John Hodgson, photographer
