William Miller: “To look into the Gowanus canal is to gaze into the eyes of a corpse. It is murky and clouded over but if you look closely you can see life and light reflected in the mercury, feces and coal tar that drift in the canal like malevolent clouds. This uncomfortable cohabitation is the foundation of a photographic study of the strangely beautiful horror that the canal hosts”
Brandon Seidler fuses the chemicals taken in that area with his photographs- to show both toxin and landscape. Strange that he uses photography to protest. The photography process uses chemicals-manufactured products.
