Engineering Beauty: Black and White Views of New York Waters, a dynamic photography exhibit, opens in the first-floor Link Gallery of the Erie Canal Museum on April 10, 2019. This exhibit features black and white photographs of canals, dams, hydroelectric plants, and other New York water resources, taken with a large-format camera by consulting historian and documentation photographer Bruce G. Harvey. Harvey is based in Syracuse and does work for a variety of clients. Many of his amazing images feature historic structures and places, at-risk sites, canals, and other waterways.
Harvey has exhibited some of his works at the Museum in the past, and we are proud to host another exhibit during the eight-year bicentennial of the Erie Canal’s construction. Harvey’s works will be on display daily through September 15.
