About the Book
Whether you are religious, spiritual, an atheist or scientist, everyone agrees that water is the source of life, if not life itself. Every living thing on our planet originated from water. We are sustained by its vital combination of hydrogen and oxygen in a perfect ratio of two-to-one. And it was in water that man first saw his reflection, had his first glimpse of his existence. But we cannot actually see water. It is clear. What we see when we look at water is light reflected off its surface. Water is – always has been -- unseeable… until now. This project is the first time you will see water. Moses Hacmon’s FACES OF WATER is part art, part science, part spiritual awakening. It is a breathtaking, haunting collection of photographic images of water that transforms and advances our understanding of this life-giving substance, exposes a layer of reality previously hidden from sight.
Moses Hacmon is an artist and architect. Born in 1977 in Tel-Aviv, Israel, Moses studied cinematography and fine art at Avni Institute of Art and Design in Tel-Aviv. In 2006 Moses completed his B.Arch with AIA honors award, from SCI_Arc (Southern California Institute of Architecture). After graduating Moses started intense training in movement and dance with Body Weather Laboratory to explore water in a somatic manner. Moses spent ten years studying Water’s composition, properties, and movement. Moses developed a photographic technique that captures the hidden life of this substance for the first time; it’s called Faces of Water. This technique exposes the movement of life within Water and its infinite form.
