“For the last century and a half, the photo essay has been a vital cultural form. Working in this modern form, Micah Cash’s book depicting the hydroelectric dams of the Tennessee Valley Authority and the localities of these dams provides a compelling and valuable depiction of a crucial reshaping of the American landscape. The sensibility conveyed by Cash’s photographs is engaged and caring but also honest. One feels both the thickness of history and the complexity of the present, while remaining subtly reminded of the inescapable difficulty of representing these matters through images.”
—Robin Kelsey, Shirley Carter Burden Professor of Photography, Harvard University
what people are saying about dangerous waters
"Photography is a limited and limiting medium, but it can stir questions that often go unasked and unanswered. Cash’s work in this project, both visual and written, remind us of the complexity of choices often made long ago, sometimes far away, but still leave us dealing with the consequences."
