Examining the history and controversy behind current and proposed dam removal projects, DamNation presents a dynamic perspective on Man’s attempt to harness and control the power of water at the expense of nature. Nothing lasts forever, not even the concrete monoliths that have impounded America’s free flowing rivers in the name of “progress” for ages.
There’s now a stunning gallery of images, such as the one above, from the filming of the documentary. There are shots of dams now goneElwha and Glines Canyon Dams, for instanceas well as many that need to come down. No matter where you stand on these issues, the photography is compelling and often beautiful.
