Beautiful Photos of the Disgusting Pollution in a New York Canal by Photographer Steven Hirsch


“Gowanus: Off The Water’s Surface” is a series of photos by Steven Hirsch, of the horribly polluted waters in the Gowanus Canal, in Brooklyn, New York. Hirsch boosts the contrast of the images but what you’re looking at are indeed photographs. More images below.

    im not sure what to feel. i kinda like looking at it and gross out the same time.

  • i’d like to know how these were shot. i’m sure it doesn’t look like this in real life but it’d be nuts if it did. hard to imagine what it really looks like w/o context though.

    still beautiful photos.

    the good thing is you can look at the beauty of the photos & not have to smell the noxious fumes which can be over-powering.
