Only a few days left!
Brass Valley: Made in America
photographs by Emery Roth
March 3rd to April 25th


When I began following the old tracks through the Naugatuck Valley, I wanted to photograph what was left of its industrial past. I was looking for rust and a glimpse of another age. I never expected to find myself in a time warp, photographing where giant hydraulics are still hissing, steel clanking, hot, glowing metal flying through the air, where the steam still rises from old pickling vats, and men charge furnaces in buildings where the soot has had more than a hundred years to cake. I never dreamed such a place still existed. This is a show about that place. (http://blogz.org/Blog828566-Brass-Valley-Made-In-America-Photo-Exhibit-At-Sharon-Historical-Society.htm)

PHOTOGRAPHER'S JOURNAL: 

Slow Sacrament

Lifted on queen posts,
Wind-braced and weathered
Purlins in procession
Uphold the liturgy
Ready as they bend,
Though it's not clear why.
