Water: Our Thirsty World

Wednesdays–Sundays (11am–6pm)



Annenberg Space for Photography (Venue Partner)

2000 Avenue of the Stars




National Geographic puts a new spin on a classic subject, using cutting-edge photographic technology to build a sweeping portfolio of the past and future of water on Earth. From agriculture to industry, religion, conservation, commerce, artistry, exploration, and mythology, no aspect of human life is unaffected by the presence — or increasingly, the absence — of fresh water. A special issue of NatGeo and a related exhibition and extensive public programming at LA's Annenberg Space for Photography tackle this fluid topic in light of dire resource-war scenarios and nature's evaporating majesty.
