Death of a Valley

A few years ago, my mom and I came across a book of old photographs that documented the life of a small California town in the year preceding its drowning under a dammed lake. I've been haunted by these photographs ever since, and, as California heats up, dries out and searches for more water, the story of this old town feels all the more relevant. Here's my essay up in Guernica (one that's been kicking around in my brain for about eight years) about these photographs and California's long, tense and grasping relationship with water.
