About MIrages

Water. So beautiful to look at, to bring calm to the mind by an oasis, lift to a surfboard in Tahiti, and the quenching of a prodigious thirst of a marathon runner. Water is also an invisible type of footprint, thought much like a mirage unaware, being felt all over the world.

With the lowest consumption coming from South Africa at 59 Billion to China’s whopping 1207 Billion cubic meters, the planet we all share is now in crisis. According to the UN, by 2025, two-thirds of the world’s people will live in countries with high water stress or scarcity. Eighty percent of all illness in the developing world is related to the lack of it, with unsafe access killing 200 children every hour.

In the end, water connects us to each other, to everyone and everything in the Universe. Tomorrow a mirage could turn into a reality, making this world a better one. To make it happen, we deeply believe the time has come to take the first step together, and these photographs show the living beauty of water, bringing the awareness of the magnitude of this desperate issue, touching us all.
