Special thanks to Gary @standupvirgin who invited me to see first-hand our mistreated water but also appreciate its value and the life that found ways to exist despite of the pollution @gowanusdredgers
From watching it by in a subway car to taking it slow and riding it on canoe: The Gowanus Canal.

These are fine art, hand pulled, prints depicting Riverside Park & the Hudson River landscape in New York City as viewed from Manhattan. Measuring 6″ x 9″, the prints were executed with chromogenic print on Fuji Deep Matte paper and were created in 2021. The prints are unframed and signed in ink on the back in the lower right hand corner.
C-type, or chromogenic printing is the process which the digital image is projected onto light-sensitive paper with silver-based chemistry. The paper is exposed to light, and the image is infused into the paper through a chemical process.

I took a hike along the river west of Mannahatta (Manhattan). There was an ongoing light shower that I was not prepared for.
I walked thinking about the river as a non-human friend. I thought about all life that receives support from it.
I walked off the asphalt path to be closer to the shore and I stayed on the haki (soil). I noticed the a narrow trail made by human traffic and along it. I would see other trails that would divert away into more obscure locations, where there was more foliage, rocky, and steeper declines. Curious to see where other people have been, wondering what they have been doing out of sight.
I saw the great bridge that stretches over the river I’m feeling responsible for. I’m taken by it’s scale as usual. Seeing it disappear into the fog, adds greater emphasis its “tallness”.
The river that flows two/both ways. When I got to stand on the sand, the closest I can be to the water while remaining on land, I watch and listen to its flow. It gets loud and excited, then calms and becomes quiet.
