 About the Book 

Water is both the most ordinary and extraordinary of resources- without it, nothing can survive. Yet, 1.1 billion people around the world do not have ready access to clean water, and more than 2.6 billion people lack access to basic sanitation. IfMoreWater is both the most ordinary and extraordinary of resources- without it, nothing can survive. Yet, 1.1 billion people around the world do not have ready access to clean water, and more than 2.6 billion people lack access to basic sanitation. If there is magic on this planet, it is contained in water, which is about nothing less than our planet’s survival.During his travels around the world, Dutch photographer Taco Anema listened to the voices of children telling their stories of the importance of water to them. The result is a collaboration between the artist and The World Conservation Union that, for the first time, presents water issues as seen through the fresh and spontaneous eyes of children—focusing on the wonder, power, and beauty of water.The Tales of Water project includes a documentary film and short clips, international traveling exhibitions, and a website showcasing the children’s photos.
