Featured in Bitter Southerner: Common High GroundTheSeptember 14, 2021
Today, the Bitter Southerner published a beautifully written, tragic piece by Spencer George entitled Common High Ground: How Charleston’s Artists are Responding to Climate Change, and I’m honored to have images from my Mean High Water project included throughout the feature. A few months ago, I met Spencer at a coffee shop in Downtown Charleston to discuss the Mean High Water project, my experience as a stormwater engineer, and the flooding challenges we face here in the South Carolina Lowcountry. It’s exciting to see her work published today as part of Better Southerner’s Hell and High Water Series. The timing could not be better - the latest Army Corps report on a surge protection barrier for the Charleston Peninsula was released last Friday, and the public can comment on the plan until October 25th.
Bitter Southerner also just released a Hell and High Water t-shirt, and $5 from every shirt sold will go towards organizations providing relief in the South. Currently, proceeds will go to support those suffering and recovering from the impacts of Hurricane Ida. Check it out in their store!
