DeRosa’s gowanus canal revisited: Polluted Past, Uncertain Future

When people think of beauty it usually has something to do with a picturesque natural landscapes such as colorful flowers next to tiny streams or giant tree covered mountains against endless blue skies. One really doesn’t think about industrial areas filled with concrete, scraps of metal, or even polluted water as something beautiful…unless you’re Robert DeRosa. Robert has a unique perspective that takes the ugliness of industrial waste and turns into something almost enchanting. In an interview with GYFO last month Robert stated that his “landscapes are made out of rivers of concrete, mountains of glass, and tumbleweeds full of liter.” Just one look at his work and you’ll see that the unnatural elements in his photographs look like something picturesque and almost natural.

Robert’s “The Gowanus Canal Revisited: Polluted Past, Uncertain Future” will be show at The Exhibition Lab in Manhattan starting this week.

Here are the details:
