Pani, Pahar – Waters of the Himalayas

Tuesday 29th October – Monday 4th November

10:00am – 5:00pm

This informative photography exhibition by local environmental photographer, Toby Smith, explores the dynamic landscapes and escalating water crises of the Indian and Nepali Himalayas.  It combines contemporary documentary work with archival prints alongside academic research from The Cambridge University Department of Geography, Indian and Nepali researchers. The exhibition is part of the 2019 ESRC Festival of Science.

The project presents the rapid changes and interdependence of human and physical geography across these incredible landscapes. An evening event on the 4th November will discuss the striking similarities of technical challenges and ecological solutions found in both Indian Hill Stations and the wider Stroud area since the dramatic floods of 2007.
