"Looking at the cracks in homemade bread, Alison Knowles noticed their resemblance to
rivers. Using atlases, she matched each pattern to a river. Bread and Water reproduces in
halftone all seventeen palladium prints Knowles processed from xeroxed images of the
breads. These prints combine a river image with literary passages and text fragments from
books containing geographical and ecological information."

With an introduction by Henry Martin.
