15th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest
Smokestacks, depicts the industry surrounding the Gowanus Canal.
This photo is from my Gowns Canal project which encompassed 54 photos of the industry, wildlife and contamination surrounding the Gowns Canal in Brooklyn, NY. The canal has tested positive for arsenic, radioactive waste, human feces, lead and gonorrhea to name a few. The project focused on the ecosystem of industry, contamination, resilence and the awesome healing power of nature.
