Superfund Art

Oil patterns on the Gowanus Canal in Brooklyn, NY, caused by the coal tar and oil seeping to the surface make incredible shapes that change with the flow of the tides.

Sewage flowed into the canal as early as 1858, and by the 1880’s the waterway had gained the moniker “Lavendar Lake” for its odorous qualities. The current cost of the overall EPA Superfund cleanup plan is estimated to be over $1.5 billion, and the entire project won’t be completed until mid-2023. The Gowanus Canal is located in one of the densest population centers in America.

I have photographed the Gowanus Canal area for over 30 years. Now that the waterway has been made a Superfund site, the area is changing into the Venice of Brooklyn.
