Shimmering warmth from the late afternoon sunset, a young tree presents bright green leaves in this landscape photograph from Red Hook, Brooklyn. Presenting, in front of an orange brick warehouse wall, a remnant of the neighborhood’s industrial history, the tree is incongruous and imminent. It is a contrast of a waning context opposite a symbol of emergence.
As the sun sets a passenger ferry sails into the Atlantic Basin from the Buttermilk Channel in Red Hook, Brooklyn in this landscape photograph. The Atlantic Basin was built in the first half of the 19th century to support the shipping of goods from the Erie Canal to the rest of the world. Falling into disuse as the New York waterfront business faded, the Atlantic Basin saw resurgence with freight as part of the Red Hook Container Terminal and recently supporting the Brooklyn Cruise Terminal. Although, it is unlikely that New York will ever become the great shipping port that it once was, the Atlantic Basin shows an echo of those days in its current capacity.
