    Having studied photography in the area, photographer Eliot Dudik focused his camera upon its people and landscape to capture a beauty seemingly untouched by the anxieties of city life.

    Unfortunately, as with much of America's natural beauty, construction and commerce has threatened to turn this cultural oasis into a commonplace suburbia.

    Eliot writes, "Change is descending upon an otherwise quiet, unhurried, unobtrusive, place."

    "Not only are many homes, some historic, disappearing before the tracked blades of expansion, but also the new, faster thoroughfare encourages greater disregard and obliviousness to the charm and culture the basin harbors."

    Eliot's concern for the landscape and its people brought him to produce his photo series, "Road Ends In Water".

    "For their tenacity, good humor, social commitment, and acceptance of the ebb and flow of the often incomprehensible vagaries of existence."
