Water is precious. This is especially true to places like California where agriculture and a huge urban population are very dependent on irrigation and the constant supply of water. One of the man-made structures easily forgotten and not always understood is the 700-mile long California Aqueduct, a huge system of canals starting from San Joaquin-Sacramento River Delta and stretching down to Southern California. The dramatic news about the frequent California droughts ignited my newest photographic project, Vein of Life. I wanted to not only capture the massive scale of the Aqueduct structures but also to highlight the multi-faceted life in its vicinity. I am happy to present 6 of a total of around 50 images I captured on my numerous trips to various locations along the Aqueduct.
