Waves Of Change (2010)
WAVES OF CHANGE is a photo-story documentary project revealing the human side of the world water crisis in Zambia, India and Haiti.
Based on more than 100 interviews, Waves Of Change is comprised of 25 stories and dozens of photographs tracking the progression of international development’s impact on individuals and families from survival to hope and empowerment and, ultimately, to independence. Writer Melanie Jones and photographer Cate Cameron’s mission was to tell the story behind the statistics and give both face and voice to the people living in the areas where Centre for Affordable Water and Sanitation Technology (CAWST) works.
