Untitled 8, from the series River
River is a series of waterscapes that explores themes of impermanence and loss through historical urban architecture. The images were made along the Hudson River in Manhattan between Canal and 65th Streets in areas that were part of New York's once vital shipping industry and railroad transportation system. The contain remnants of the deteriorated maritime piers, piles that supported the piers, original railroad structures, as well as recent constructions that are part of the new Hudson River Park. Across the river, at the horizon line in some of the photographs, other historical structures can be seen in New Jersey such as the Erie Lackawanna Railroad terminal in Hoboken and the Colgate Clock in Jersey City. The architectural elements in the photographs conjure history of more than a century ago, a vast cultural shift is implied and the suggestion of evolution and change is imparted.
