Based on archival investigations, and on-site documentation through long-exposure photography and digital simulations, this research aims to expand our comprehension of the role of water as an important driver for activities within the Tamale Forest Reserve and its surroundings. By evaluating the importance of the area in terms of water regulation and distribution in Tamale, tracing its irreversible and seasonal changes, the notion of a multidimensional relational system, influenced by both natural phenomena and anthropogenic actions, appears. Simultaneously, close-up depictions implying the presence of water through long-exposure photography help to evaluate the demand for, social influence of, and attitudes towards this precious fluid. All the elements are essentially an imprint of and formulate one complex entity, related within itself through the multitude of spatial and temporal scales.
