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 website.
