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.

Artist Spotlight: Carson Davis Brown

“Mass” is a project by artist Carson Davis Brown in which he creates sculptures inside of big-box stores and other places of mass. He constructs the unauthorized installations, photographs them, and then leaves them to be discovered by shoppers and staff. Images of the installations are printed, framed (using un-sold frames), and exhibited inside the stores without permission. See more images from the series below as well as video clips documenting the building of installations using cameras tethered to in-store camera displays!
