Valuable water is an exhibition about Swedish freshwater. The photographer Johan Hammar travelled from north to south during two years to document Sweden’s fantastic diversity of water environments. He presents unique environments and a variety of life both over and under the surface with photos, movies and sound. Almost 5000 species are connected to fresh water in our streams, rivers, lakes and wetlands. We are a little spoiled in Sweden and take our fresh and clean water for granted. We have had a negative effect on our freshwater during a long time, but the trend has changed and there are projects to restore and recreate water environments over the whole country. It benefits the diversity of species dependent on fresh water environments but also us humans.
In the exhibition “Valuable water”, water environments from Småland are shown in the Iron works at Huseby Bruk. The exhibition is open for the public from the 11th of May.
