From the Introduction: "We are lucky, as waters of the world are dirtied and diverted, that John Pfahl is here to document them and remind us of what we have and what we are losing. Susan Sontag has asserted that all photographs are elegiac, memento mori, testifying "to time's relentless melt." Even as they memorialize, they remind us of our own, and the earth's, mutability."
