Victoria Falls

water fall


Jurassic period

Dividing Zambia and Zimbabwe this is the single largest plane of falling water on earth. The plume of spray from the falling water can rise 2,500 ft into the air and is visible over 20 miles away.


Confronting any phenomena of this scale has a macroscopic effect on our own sense of location in the world but when it also marks, by definition, the path of a mighty river, the boundaries of entire countries and the transforming state of elements we are faced with the chance to imagine our place amidst all of this, to locate ourselves on a truly grand scale.
