CORNING, NY.- On August 14, 2015, The Rockwell Museum opened an exhibition of photographs by National Geographic photographer, Pete McBride. The exhibition, “The Colorado River: Flowing Through Conflict” is a collection of large-scale original photographs by McBride as he has documented The Colorado. The exhibition will be on view through January 10, 2016.

Supplying vital water to more than 40 million Americans living in the arid West, the Colorado River is one of the most diverted, dammed, and heavily litigated rivers in the world. The farmers and residents of the rapidly growing western states rely on the river for irrigation, drinking water, and electricity. This demand has permanently altered the river’s ecology. This exhibition follows the length of the river's epic 1,450 mile journey from its headwaters high in the Colorado Rockies to its dried-up delta touching the Sea of Cortez, illuminating the historical, geographical, and environmental significance of this life- giving river.

In order to bring awareness to these issues in a unique way, Pete McBride shot many of the images from the air. As McBride explains, “The aerial perspective shows where we as humans have been, how we connect to the earth, and how nature relates to itself.”

Native Coloradan Pete McBride has spent almost two decades studying the world with his camera. A self-taught, award-winning photographer, filmmaker and writer, he has traveled on assignment to over 60 countries for the publications of the National Geographic Society, Smithsonian, Outside, Men's journal, Esquire, STERN and many others.

Raised on a Colorado cattle ranch, Pete is passionate about storytelling and unique, gripping ways to communicate them, whether it involves vantages from 20,000 feet or swimming below icebergs. His perspective on capturing water-related stories led American Photo Magazine to list Pete as "one of the top five water photographers" in the nation.

After a decade working mostly abroad, Pete decided to focus his cameras closer to home on a subject closer to his heart. Combining his passion for aviation and his belief in conservation, he spent over two years documenting his local river - the Colorado. This journey culminated in the acclaimed coffee table book: "The Colorado River: Flowing Through Conflict", an award-winning short film, "Chasing Water" and a traveling museum exhibit/lecture currently touring the U.S.

In 2011 and 2012, his film "Chasing Water" won over 20 film festival awards including "Best Short Documentary" at Canada's Banff Mtn. Film Festival, "Best Environmental Film" at England's Kendal Mtn. Festival and "Best Documentary" at Florida's Clear Water Festival, to name a few.

His photography honors include awards from Pictures of the Year International, Photo Week DC, Communications Arts, The Society of Professional journalists and a Knight Fellowship for Professional journalists at Stanford University. In 2011, he was awarded "River Conservator" by the Roaring Fork Conservancy for his ongoing awareness work with water conservation.

When not on assignment, you can find Peter in the mountains or on the rivers around the Roaring Fork Valley, Colorado.
