Derges created the images in this series at night in Dartmoor, England. The other-worldly, mesmerizing images of the river's ripples and floating debris were made by placing large sheets of light-sensitive cibachrome paper in a box constructed with aluminum and submerging it in the River Taw. When she was ready to make an image, the top of the box was removed, a flash set off, and the sheet exposed.
