Living in New York City it is easy to forget that we live as part of nature. In August 2015, I was invited to take a canoe ride into Newtown Creek and photograph. Along the shores I witnessed a historic and ongoing industrialization but in the canoe, on the water at sunset, it was peaceful and beautiful. Thanks to the North Brooklyn Boat Club for all their help and to Brooke Singer for organizing!
