For decades, John Moran has tried to capture the unique beauty of Florida's nature through his photographs. In that same time, however, he turned a blind eye to the less picturesque signs of environmental changes.
That changed more than a year ago when he set out to document those changes, specifically to the state's freshwater springs, including Silver Springs near Ocala.
The results of that project, entitled Springs Eternal: Florida's Fragile Fountains of Youth, will be exhibited at the Florida Museum of Natural History in Gainesville starting March 23.
The exhibit features more than 60 photographs, many comparing and contrasting photos taken by Moran over a 20 year period.
