The Call of Water
An installation of Barron's photography of women in water along the creek walk. Barron’s images explore the age-old universal theme of man in nature. She quotes, “I believe we all learn from nature especially water, the source of life itself.” Nature helps you understand yourself, as it highlights qualities that coincide with your existence.

In creating these narrative themes, Roses’s images of the female in water explore themes of dreams, emotions, fears and memory. The work stems from the way she responds to the spaces, settings and environment — how she perceives the energy in spaces and their surroundings. Through the imagery generated, Barron explores personal identity, as well as relationships to the places near and far.
