With the lowest consumption coming from South Africa at 59 Billion to China’s whopping 1207 Billion cubic metres, the planet we all share is now in crisis. According to the UN, by 2025, two thirds of the world’s people will live in countries with high water stress or scarcity. Eighty percent of all illness in the developing world is related to the lack of it, with unsafe access killing 200 children every hour.
In the end, water connects us to each other, to everyone and everything in the Universe. Tomorrow a mirage could turn into a reality, making this world a better one. To make it happen, we deeply believe the time has come to take the first step together, and through these photographs show the living beauty of water, bringing the awareness of the magnitude of this desperate issue, touching us all.

The Making of Your Photographic Art
- PPMA plates (Methyl poly methcrylate, technical name for plexi) arrive pre-cut 8mm thick and to the dimensions of the control, protected by a two-sided film.
- The edges are polished for a transparency pleasing to the eye and thus increase the refraction index.
- Preparing the print file in CMJN mode to the dimensions of the or plates to be printed with a definition of 150 to 300 dpi
- Printing RIP Preparation: This allows you to frame an image to make it printable, and manage colors and print flow.
- Setting the SwissQprint Nyala 2 large-format inkjet printer. The tracer uses UV-drying inks adhering to all media, allowing prints of 3.2×2.0 meters with a maximum thickness of 50mm at a speed of 206m/h.
- Printing the back of the PPMA or media at the same time even if the board is in several parts.
- An opacifying layer and a protective adhesive.
- Collage of an aluminum-backed frame on the protection at the back of each module, which is 5cm back from the edges for perfect stiffness and allows it to be attached to the wall. Your photograph is ready!
