Jeff Whetstone who has been photographing and writing about the relationship between man and nature since he received a zoology degree from Duke University, brought a special sensitivity to his photo-essay on the Cuyahoga River. By perceptively following the river along both its rural and urban paths, he highlights the importance of this invaluable resource to our community. Whetstone, who also has a Master of Fine Arts degree in photography from Yale University, is a winner of the Sakier Prize for photography, the Factor Prize for Southern Art and a Guggenheim Fellowship. He currently teaches at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Whetstone’s work has been exhibited nationally and featured and reviewed in publications such as DoubleTake, The New York Times, The New Yorker and Southern Exposure Magazine.
