Cohocksink – Pool Club

EDIT (4.9.2020) – This image is currently part of a special print sale I am holding.  Click here to browse available prints.

I maintain a fine arts practice in addition to my commercial photography studio.  For a few years now, I have been producing work for a series entitled Cohocksink.  I have been using a culverted creek bed as a guide – the former Cohocksink Creek.  The work explores ideas of progress and self-worth, and is shot entirely within a one-square mile neighborhood in Philadelphia called Northern Liberties.  This neighborhood surrounds the buried Cohocksink, which still runs through it as a storm drain.  Once an industrial center (and later a haven for artists), in recent years the neighborhood has become heavily residential and decidedly up-scale.  New construction routinely sells for hundreds of thousands of dollars.

I will be posting periodic images from Cohocksink.  A fuller form of this project can be found on my fine art website.
