2 years in 20 minutes. Behind the scenes of WA IS WATER.


Join award-winning poet and photographer Jennifer Preston Chushcoff as she journeys through Washington’s foggy forests, waterfalls, cranberry bogs and nature preserves. Explore the seasons of the Evergreen State as she reveals the intricate connection of water to our past, present and future.

Combining her love of science, the natural world and language, Jennifer travels more than 3,700 miles, from the wild Pacific coastline to the mysterious Scablands. She returns with expressive photos and intimate poems that examine questions of faith and mortality to geological processes and the structure of snowflakes. Interlaced throughout are facts about Washington’s agriculture, climate and geography. A Name the Rain dictionary, Northwest Pronunciation Guide and conservation tips are also included. 

WA IS WATER was awarded a TAIP Grant by the Tacoma Arts Commission.
